Windermere School is an independent, coeducational boarding and day school in the heart of England’s Lake District National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The breathtaking location not only makes for an inspiring educational setting but enables students to make use of what surrounds them; taking part in watersports, hill walking and many other outdoor adventures. This makes for a truly unique and ever busy extra-curricular programme

Holiday Courses

Windermere School offers a range of watersports courses that take place during the School holidays. We welcome children aged 8 to 17 from external schools, and our own school, to take part.
