The curriculum is rooted in a practical learning-through-play approach that is structured and balanced, as well as being relevant to each individual child and to the world around us.
Each room has access to the self-enclosed Infant garden where children can thrive in the natural environment and explore the world of imagination, creation and fantasy overlooking the beautiful Lake Windermere.
Children can join us from their third birthday (we accept nursery entitlement vouchers) and begin a journey of discovery that encompasses a wide range of experiences: from music-making to plum-picking in our own orchard; watching the newborn lambs in the adjacent meadow; writing their own name for the first time; or performing in our nativity play.
Three of our four daughters have been boarders at the Senior School following our unexpected move to Hong Kong in 2012. One moved back to board at Windermere following two years in Hong Kong and our youngest can't wait to follow in her footsteps and return as an overseas boarder into Year 9. We cannot fault the standard of education and care which the girls have enjoyed throughout their Windermere journeys. In particular, we love the location - and the way in which the Lake District becomes part of the curriculum - and the international flavour of the Senior School.
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.
