Windermere School is proud to offer an Immersion Programme that runs throughout the academic year. Immersion pupils will make friends from the UK and around the world whilst improving their English skills and developing their independence. They will study alongside Windermere School pupils and will participate in all aspects of school life, following the normal timetable of lessons in their year group. When Windermere School pupils study Modern Foreign Languages our Immersion pupils will take part in extra English lessons.

Immersion pupils in Year 12 will complete an International Baccalaureate taster following either the Diploma Programme or Career-related pathway within our thriving Sixth Form community. During this time they will live in our Sixth Form boarding house in university style, single sex apartments; the perfect preparation for life beyond school.

Immersion pupils will also enjoy sports, social events and activities including sailing at Hodge Howe, our private watersports centre on the shores of Windermere, and a weekly excursion.

Our Immersion Programme is open to pupils between the ages of  8 and 17, all year round, with exceptions around examination dates.  Stays ideally will be in a 4 week block, but we can offer 2 and 3 week stays or indeed for half or full terms.  Note all of our year groups have, at some point in the school year, formal or mock examinations so do check dates before with us before making an application.
