Junior School (ages 3-11)
The Elleray Campus is where the Windermere adventure begins.
Our beautiful setting provides each child with the space to flourish. With adventurous learning at the heart of our provision, the children learn vital skills that they bring back into the classroom and take with them through life. Whether they are taking part in Forest School, den building, reading books in caves, or performing on our outdoor stage, there is both challenge and enjoyment. There is a warmth, vibrancy and kindness at Elleray that makes it a very special place to learn.
Senior School (ages 11-18)
The adventure continues at Browhead Campus.
By providing a safe and traditional environment, students are given every opportunity to become the very best version of themselves; able to grow in confidence, develop their personalities, discover their strengths and excel academically, leaving us equipped for a life beyond the school gates.
Our students are encouraged to have the confidence and resilience to stand up for what is right and a desire to reach out to others. This balance of confidence and compassion is not on any syllabus, yet it is central to everything we do and embedded in our School’s aims and values.
“A glorious backdrop in which to learn and grow, and the school makes full use of it.”
