Junior Boarding Life

Windermere has a thriving boarding community, which makes up some 50 per cent of pupil numbers in the Upper School. 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 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.

Junior boarders arrive at main school for lessons after breakfast and a short ride on the school shuttle bus from the Browhead site. After lessons finish they stay at Elleray for clubs and activities before returning to Browhead at 5:15pm. Dinner is at 6pm and prep and activities are organised and supervised by house staff until bedtime.

Full and weekly boarding options are available, and where possible, we will try to accommodate flexi-boarding arangements to suit individual needs.
