We are not an academically selective school and thus our consistently high results speak to the quality of our teaching, broad curriculum, extracurricular offering and academic standards. At Windermere School we believe pupils should strive to do their best in every aspect of life. We encourage hard work and self-belief by inspiring and challenging them to learn about their strengths and weaknesses in a variety of settings. With time and practice they will grow and develop, discovering more about themselves, and improving their knowledge and skills.

We offer a combination of GCSE and IGCSE courses

For our GCSE cohort of 2023, 68% of all grades being awarded at levels 9-6/ A*-B. In addition, over 47% of all grades were a level 7/ grade A or higher and over 30% of awards were at the highly coveted level 8/ grade A* or above. The overall pass rate was impressive, with over 91% of all grades awarded at level 4/ grade C or above.

There were several excellent performances, including Oscar J, and Poppy B who achieved an amazing set of outcomes with level 8s and 9s/A* across the board.

We are also delighted with the (I)GCSE results achieved by our Year 10 pupils. 50% of the one-year Chemists in Year 10 achieved a level 7 or above, and particular mention should go to Maise D, Aarupi J and Edie J in Year 10 who achieved a top level 9.

The school offers a mixture of IGCSEs and GCSEs which suits the pupils well. Universities draw no distinction between the two examinations types and the mixture ensures that the school can continue to offer courses to the pupils which are best suited to their aspirations.
