Our vision is to be the best small school in Britain.

Our students are encouraged to have the confidence and resilience to stand up for what is right and a desire to reach out to others. This balance of confidence and compassion is not on any syllabus, yet it is central to everything we do and embedded in our School’s aims and values.

Life at Windermere School is different. Our location in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the scope of the facilities and grounds is truly inspiring. Our compliment of students across all of our age ranges ensures an environment when young people can grow in confidence, excel academically, and discover their innate strengths, talents, and potential.

Our Mission

Our mission is to produce confident and compassionate people, shaped by our determination to encourage self-knowledge, articulated by our school motto:

Vincit qui se vincit – One conquers who conquers oneself.

Our Aims

We aim to guide children as they grow and progress along their own pathways, so that they are prepared for life beyond the school gates.

A teacher is a guide and guide is also an acronym for the five Aims of the school: global, unique, individual, democratic, excellence.

We are a School with a global perspective, using our unique location, developing individual talents, fostering a democratic culture and encouraging our students to strive for excellence.

Our Ethos

Windermere School students have the confidence and resilience to stand up for what is right and the desire to reach out to others. This balance of confidence and compassion is not on any syllabus, yet it is central to everything we do and embedded in our aims and values.
