Windermere School has finished the 2017/18 academic year with another exceptional set of International Baccalaureate (IB) results. In…
Boarding is a happy and contented way of life for many of our students, some joining the school as full-time boarders from the age of eight.
The boarding children reside in Langdale House for boys, and Browhead for girls under the supervision of an experienced Housemaster or Housemistress, ably supported by their assistant and academic tutors. We provide a safe and caring extended family environment where boarding pupils can flourish academically, socially and personally. Full and weekly boarding options are available, and where possible, we will try to accommodate flexi-boarding arangements to suit individual needs. Boarding and day students alike are encouraged to take part in the busy schedule of weekend and evening activities.
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.
