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.
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.
