Windermere School has finished the 2017/18 academic year with another exceptional set of International Baccalaureate (IB) results. In…
The journey continues as your child moves into Year 1. A broad and varied range of lessons is planned, expertly delivered by our experienced staff who continue to help children develop academically, morally, spiritually and, most importantly, individually.
Our unique curriculum is delivered by a class teacher in spacious rooms. Each class has a teaching assistant and is well resourced. Small class sizes ensure close and secure relationships between pupils and staff, making for a wonderful environment where mutual respect is not only attempted, but achieved.
From the earliest age, our Junior curriculum is designed to inspire our children to gain knowledge by thinking and discovering for themselves. Our range of subjects ensures a balance of progressive academic, creative and physical development to provide a rounded education. Language, literacy and numeracy are fundamental; but equally, learning how to learn and how to translate ideas into action are essential life skills that will sustain a lifetime of learning and involved citizenship.
We engage the natural curiosity and enthusiasm of our students through an adventurous and innovative approach to learning. Our curriculum is designed to develop articulate and confident children who are well prepared for life at Senior School.
In short, at Windermere we aim to care for your child in an environment where education is not just a journey, it’s an adventure!
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.
