For many students, their Sixth Form years are the happiest and most stimulating time of their school career. It is the first time they can choose subjects which really interest them and, because they are older, the opportunities for travel and adventure are suddenly greater.
In many cases, students will have taken some public examinations already and will be more confident of their strengths. There is also the excitement of planning for life beyond school. For some this will be work, for others apprenticeships and for some universities. These universities may be anywhere in the world. Indeed, the whole world is suddenly opening up before them.
Windermere School is an IB World School offering the IB Diploma Programme and was recently named The International Baccalaureate School of the Year by the Sunday Times in their Parent Power supplement, which was released on 26 November 2017. It is now also a candidate school* for the IB Career-related Programme. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education – that we believe is important for our students. We also offer IB Certificates and standalone vocational qualifications and we will try our very best to provide the best educational pathway for you.
We are also a Round Square School; this blends perfectly with the IB philosophy and the two intersect with Service at their cores.

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.
