Junior Boarding Life

Windermere has a thriving boarding community, which makes up some 35 per cent of pupil numbers. For some, boarding is a necessity, as their parents live far away from the School. For others who live closer, it’s a matter of choice.

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, extended family.

Each house buzzes with a life of its own. Boarding staff recognise the importance of a balance between work and social life. Academic support, with an emphasis on independent learning, is offered as are a range of fun weekend activities which encourage friendship and community, 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.
