In collaboration with LA23NET, Windermere School will welcome the Chairman of Warburtons, Jonathan Warburton, on Wednesday 6 March…
During the Easter and Summer holidays, Windermere School operates Sailing courses for children aged 8 to 17. Operating from Hodge Howe; the School’s private, lakeside watersports centre, all courses take place every morning. Each week long course costs £175.
Our team of qualified and experienced staff welcome students of all levels and abilities. We provide all safety equipment, and can also provide wetsuits and spray jackets if required. Operating in small groups, our friendly instructors are joined by a team of volunteers from the School’s sailing team.
Hodge Howe is an accredited RYA Training Centre where students can develop their sailing skills. Our selection of Bugs, Picos, Lasers, Fevas and Tera dingies enables us to cater for children aged 8 to 17, from beginners through to advanced sailors. Participants will receive a RYA Youth Sailing Log book (or can add to their existing log book).
Easter Course Dates 2019
Our Easter Sailing Courses will take place on the following dates:
Sailing will NOT take place on Monday 8 April 2019 or Friday 19 April 2019 (Good Friday). The hours on both courses are adjusted to compensate for a four day week.
The sailing courses are open to all children aged between 8 and 17 and are not exclusive to Windermere School students.
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.
