Students aged 11 to 17 years old, who have spent the morning sailing at Hodge Howe Watersports Centre, can join our international summer school students for an afternoon of sports, games and arts and crafts.
Following a morning at Hodge Howe, students will be taken to Windermere Senior School (Browhead), where they will enjoy a freshly prepared lunch before taking part in the afternoon activities. The cost for the full week, including watersports is £290. Students will be able to take part in activities such as Ghyll Scrambling, Paintballing, Tennis, Archery, Fencing, Football, Basketball, Arts and Crafts and other exciting activities. They can also take part in further watersports sessions. Sailing and Kids Club Younger students aged 8 to 10 years old can sail and also join the Kids Club in the afternoons.
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.
