Parents are a fundamental part of life at Windermere School, and The Friends are a group of active parents who help sustain our strong sense of community.

The Friends meet termly and comprise of one Parent Form Coordinator for each year group, with a Chair, Secretary, and representatives from the school. Anyone is welcome to join.

The events and social activities organised by The Friends are intended to create a friendly and welcoming social community for the benefit of parents, students, and staff which helps to highlight the family atmosphere of our school.

Funding is provided for projects which would normally fall outside of the Schools’ budget, and which enhance the educational and recreational experience across year groups. The distribution of the funds raised through events is decided at termly event meetings. The requests for funding are made to the Committee after approval by the Headmaster.
