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, Browhead, 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, Elleray, are a little different. We suggest a tour, followed by a meeting with Mrs Julie King, Head of Elleray and a Taster Day.
To proceed with your application, we ask that you complete our Registration Form and pay the Registration Fee, to confirm your interest in Windermere School.
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.
