The journey continues as your child moves into Year 1 at Windermere School.
A broad and varied range of lessons is planned at the Elleray Campus, 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 classrooms with each class afforded a teaching assistant and is well resourced.
The small class sizes at Windermere School 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!
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.
