STEP 1 – Get in Touch

Pick up the phone to talk to a member of our friendly Windermere School Admissions Team on +44(0)15394 46164, alternatively, you could email admissions@windermereschool.co.uk.

STEP 2 – Arrange a Visit

We recommend that in the first instance you visit the School during term-time to experience first-hand the energy, spirit, and warmth of our community.

STEP 3 – Book a Taster Day

A Taster Day is the best way to discover if Windermere School is the perfect fit for your family.

Where possible, the criteria for entrance into the senior school, our Browhead Campus, is a Taster Day at the school which includes an interview with the Headmaster and the Head of Section and entrance assessments. The most recent school report and a reference from the current Head Teacher is also required.

The criteria for entrance into the preparatory school, based on Elleray Campus, are a little different. We suggest a tour, followed by a meeting with Mrs Julie King, Head of Elleray and a Taster Day.

STEP 4 – Make an Application
