Welcome to Windermere School Holiday Programmes


Established in 1863, Windermere School is an independent day and boarding school with a modern and innovative approach that encourages young people to strive for excellence in all they do. Our amazing location in the heart of the English Lake District, a UNESCO World Heritage site and area of outstanding beauty, offers a stimulating environment in which to develop and achieve both inside and outside the classroom. Outdoor education and adventurous learning are also integral to the curriculum and co-curricular programme.


Windermere has a long history of welcoming students into our special community for a short stay, you are guaranteed to learn, have loads of fun and make new friends. Our school motto ‘Vincit qui se vincit’ – one conquers who conquers oneself – exemplifies Windermere’s commitment to challenging our pupils to excel and achieve their potential.
