As part of the Service element in our IDEALS programme, Year 6 take on various roles and responsibilities…
Windermere School offers a number of Non-Residential International Summer Schools, where children from the local community can join our vast array of courses, from Watersports and Activity courses to Kids Clubs.
Hodge Howe Watersports Centre is less than a mile from the Elleray Campus and the Browhead Campus. It is accredited by the Royal Yachting Association and recognised as an offical British Youth Sailing Club.
The school enjoys a unique location in the heart of the Lake District National Park overlooking Windermere with its own watersports centre, yet is only 30 minutes from Junction 36 on the M6 and just over 90 minutes by road from Manchester and Liverpool Airports.
Hodge Howe Watersports courses offer the perfect introduction to sailing for boys and girls aged 8 to 17. We are proud to operate the courses from our private watersports centre, Hodge Howe, shown in the adjacent video.The School has been operating for a number of years as a Royal Yachting Associating (RYA) Training Centre and, in 2018, we were delighted to become an RYA British Youth Sailing Recognised Club, one of only 15 clubs nationwide and the only school in the UK to hold this accreditation.
The first time my daughter and I visited the school she said to me “that is a happy school no question.” The scholastic achievements of the school are evident and an easy measure for a school to demonstrate. What is hard to quantify is the holistic development of a pupil at which, in my experience, Windermere School excels.
Windermere School is such a unique community to be a part of. Not only is it based in a truly beautiful and inspiring national park, but the environment created by staff and students alike makes for an incredibly supportive, proactive, exciting and international place of learning in which everyone can thrive and be the best they can be.
