    Why Windermere School?

    Holiday Courses

    Elleray Campus (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.

    Browhead Campus (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.

    Private Watersports Centre

    We are privileged to have our own Watersports Centre, Hodge Howe, less than a mile away. This unique facility, recognised as a Royal Yachting Association Youth Sailing Club, lies at the heart of our Outdoor Learning Programme. In 2018, the facility was awarded Championship Club status by the RYA for its race training, we were the rst school in the UK to earn this accolade.

    At Hodge Howe students learn to sail, canoe, kayak, windsurf and wild swim. They also learn survival and map reading skills, participate in team-building exercises and gain first aid qualifications.
