The Round Square IDEALS provide a common platform, shared by all schools in the network, around which we can collaborate, swap and share learning resources and participate together in joint activities such as conferences, exchanges and academic projects. Together these make up the Round Square Discovery Framework around which Windermere School is built.


The International Baccalaureate Programme (IB) is an internationally recognised qualification for students aged 16 to 18 years taking the place of other qualifications, such as A-Levels.

At Windermere School we offer two pathways through Sixth Form with the IB, both designed to challenge, extend, motivate and inspire you. You can be confident that the path you choose will transcend pure academics, and equip you with the key transferable life skills that form the foundations of the International Baccalaureate.


For many children the real adventure starts at the end of the school day,  when they have the opportunity to choose from one of our many after-school activities. There is a wealth of choice with art and craft, sports, music and games. Our extensive lunchtime and after-school programme provides an unmissable opportunity for your child to explore their individual interests.


The Learning Support Department is well established and runs as an independent department within Windermere School. Students have access to a team of dedicated specialists who can support pupils with a variety of Special Educational Needs, and assist with the teaching of English as an Additional Language.

The Learning Support Department works with pupils on individualised programmes to help fulfil their potential and create confident and lifelong learners in collaboration with all departments across Windermere School and there are strong links with the Junior School Campus.


We understand that applying for a place at a new school can be a daunting experience.

We aim to make the process from initial enquiry through to the very first day at school as simple, transparent and stress-free as possible – in fact, we strive to make it an exciting time.
