Explore Reception

Children join us in Reception from our own Pre-School and a wide range of local nurseries.

>This is the beginning of your child’s personalised pathway through Windermere School. We ensure that their academic, creative and physical development is uninhibited and their individual character and personality are given the space to blossom.

Above all Windermere School gives children the most precious thing of all – time. It’s only by having time to explore new concepts that a child is able to ask the questions that might not have occurred to anyone else and to make connections to their past experiences.

Parents and grandparents are invited to visit and look at children’s work, and nativity and musical performances are a highlight of children’s first year at school.

Classes are warm and welcoming, with free choice play at morning drop off and parents invited into classrooms.


Windermere School welcomes children up to Year 1 that are eligible for Funded Hours, for up to 15 hours per week.

Please contact us to find out more or to arrange a visit to the Elleray.
