Windermere School has a thriving boarding community, which makes up approximately 35 per cent of pupil numbers across all year groups.
Our Junior and Senior boarders live in one of two houses, Langdale House for boys and Browhead for girls. The boarding house rapidly becomes a home-from-home and fellow boarders become extended family.
Boarding staff recognise the importance of a balance between work and social life. Academic support, with an emphasis on independent learning, is offered in addition to a range of fun weekend activities, which encourage friendship and community, and mutual respect and trust, throughout the year groups in the boarding houses.
Full and weekly boarding options are available and, where possible, we will try to accommodate flexi-boarding arrangements to suit individual needs.
We believe that happy children are more resilient and therefore do well academically, socially and emotionally.
