Our Early Years classrooms are full of surprises. We give our youngest pupils the chance to find their own magic through learning, both indoors and outdoors. From the age of three, each pupil is guided expertly on a learning journey by our dedicated teachers.
We welcome applications from students in our local region as day students, or from further afield in the UK or internationally as boarding students.
Windermere is a thriving, historic Cumbrian community and one of the UK’s most soughtafter destinations. It has easy access to major roads, airports and rail, and is safe, secure and convenient – in short, the perfect learning environment for our students.

Read the glowing inspection report from the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate (ISI) which awarded Windermere School with the highest grades possible for the quality of the education provided.
The School is located on the Elleray estate, overlooking Windermere and the fells beyond, including the Langdales, Scafell and Coniston Old Man and just down the hill is our own lakeside watersports centre. These are all an important part of our academic classroom. We seek to inspire the children in everything they do. We want every child to enjoy every minute at school and to build a desire to pursue and achieve excellence.
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.
