In collaboration with LA23NET, Windermere School will welcome the Chairman of Warburtons, Jonathan Warburton, on Wednesday 6 March…
Our school is part of the Independent and State School Partnership and aims, through this venture, to create opportunities where our students learn together through a common area of interest.
Our focus over the past couple of years has been to challenge our Gifted and Talented students in Year 10 through Modern Foreign Languages and Film Study. By doing this, we hope to make modern foreign language more than just ‘functional’, in the sense that a language is cross-curricular and can truly be an access to cultural medium and cultural diversity.
Therefore, through special days organised within the school curriculum, we offer our pupils the opportunity to meet peers from other local schools, watch a fantastic film and do lots of interesting ‘extra-ordinary’ and challenging activities relating to the movie and work with languages as they are spoken rather than in text books.
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.
