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 from the UK and around the world into our special community. 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.

Come and discover Windermere for yourselves. Whether you come to improve your English, or to sail, dance or sing, you are guaranteed to learn, have loads of fun and make new friends. I look forward to welcoming you!
