Windermere School offers a challenging and enriching educational environment across three beautiful sites. Infant and Junior students study at our Elleray site, Senior and Sixth Form students are located at Browhead. All students also have access to Hodge Howe; our watersports centre offering direct access to Lake Windermere for sailing and canoeing. In addition, we offer an International Summer School with EAL language courses and adventure activities each summer.
At Windermere School, we welcome enquiries from prospective students and their families of all ages and nationalities.
Windermere School is located in the heart of England’s Lake District National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This gives students the opportunity to take part in watersports, hill walking and many other outdoor adventures.
Windermere School runs a number of Summer Sailing courses from Hodge Howe Watersports Centre.
The location is unrivalled in beauty – yet we are only ninety minutes from two international airports. The student body is predominantly British, with a growing number of international students experiencing what we have to offer.
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.
