Windermere will not be operating its usual International Summer School in 2021. Instead, we are offering an exciting range of holiday courses for children aged 8 to 18. Residential and day options are available. Currently, these courses are open for UK applicants residents only. When the situation is clearer, after Easter, a decision will be made regarding overseas applicants.

West End at Windermere – NEW for 2021!

Windermere School has a long and successful history in the performing arts. Recent School performances include Hairspray, Legally Blonde, and Grease. We are delighted to introduce this new specialisation for 2021.

Each week, under the guidance of experienced and enthusiastic staff, and using the School’s auditorium and extensive collection of props, you will plan, rehearse and perform an excerpt from a well-known musical.

Please note this course runs from 9am to 5.30pm,  Monday to Friday.

Suitable for performers of all abilities.
