The School actively promotes global understanding among its pupils. Much of this work is sustained through membership of the Round Square Group of Schools.
On joining Windermere School, students follow a broad curriculum that follows traditional subjects. However, we also engage the natural curiosity and enthusiasm of our students through adventurous learning in our stunning local environment.

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.
