Mrs Julie King, the new Head of Elleray Campus, the Preparatory division of Windermere School, says she will…
Over the course of the last 12 months, we have been delighted to welcome a number of local primary schools to Windermere for a variety of events:
15 pupils attended from Langdale Primary School.
In total, 118 pupils attended from local schools such as: Arniside Primary School, Crosscrake Primary School, Heron Hill School and Shap Church of England Primary School.
28 pupils attended from St Mark’s Church of England Primary School.
84 pupils attended from local schools, including: Allithwaite Primary School, Stavely Church of England Primary School and Shap Church of England Primary School.
20 pupils attended the Watersports Day at Hodge Howe Watersports Centre from Cartmel Primary School.
We also offer a school meal service to local schools and, at the moment, Goodly Dale, Lindale and Lindale Nursery use this service plus other areas of the community ie Windermere Community Trust, Help the Aged UK, Goodly Dale Cottages and Alexandra Court in Windermere.
Our watersports centre is used on a weekly basis during the Summer Term by Crosthwaite Primary School and a whole range of service projects take place during the school year including support of Windermere Food Bank, conservation projects and local community work.
The first time my daughter and I visited the school she said to me “that is a happy school no question.” The scholastic achievements of the school are evident and an easy measure for a school to demonstrate. What is hard to quantify is the holistic development of a pupil at which, in my experience, Windermere School excels.
Windermere School is such a unique community to be a part of. Not only is it based in a truly beautiful and inspiring national park, but the environment created by staff and students alike makes for an incredibly supportive, proactive, exciting and international place of learning in which everyone can thrive and be the best they can be.
