At Elleray we are inspired by the curiosity and thirst for learning that each child, regardless of their academic ability, naturally holds within themselves. Our task is to encourage each child to grow and learn. We allow them to ask ‘why’, to experiment, to challenge, to discover and to innovate.


Language, literacy and numeracy are fundamental. However, at Windermere School we believe 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 also believe that our School blends the very best of the traditions of a private junior school, with the most modern educational techniques and practices. Standards of behaviour and mutual respect are just as important as the high academic standards to which we aspire.


Our curriculum is designed to develop articulate and confident children who are well prepared for life at Senior School. At Windermere School we aim to care for your child in an environment where education is not just a journey, it is an adventure!



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.


Moving up to Senior School is a very exciting time, but it can also be a little daunting. We aim to make the move as smooth and stress-free as possible.
