As part of the Service element in our IDEALS programme, Year 6 take on various roles and responsibilities…
Our Nursery and Pre-Prep classes at Elleray are full of surprises. Our youngest pupils are given the chance to find their own magic through learning, both indoors and outdoors. From the age of 3-5, each child embarks on their personal learning journey surrounded by our unique and inspirational Lake District setting.
Windermere welcomes applications for children either as day or boarding students. We invite prospective parents and their families to visit Elleray and discover what makes us truly special.
The learning at Elleray begins long before exams are considered, with the forest school providing a wonderful opportunity for our youngest children to discover the great outdoors and build the personal qualities time spent in the natural environment affords.

Windermere School’s inspection report from the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate (ISI) which awarded the school, including Nursery and Pre-Prep at Elleray, with the highest grades possible for the quality of the education and pastoral care provided.
The Elleray estate overlooks Lake Windermere and the Lake District fells beyond with Hodge Howe, our private water-sports centre, just a mile away. At Windermere School we seek to inspire the children in everything they do and want them to enjoy their time at school in pursuit of personal and academic 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.
