Welcome to Sixth Form - Year 12 to 13

During Sixth Form, you commit to becoming the best version of yourself.

You power beyond academic achievement as we fashion you into an eminently employable adult with all the tools that are needed to make the most of life. For many pupils, their Sixth Form years are the happiest and most stimulating time of their school career.

Our Sixth Form is not academically selective. We encourage our pupils to be more independent and to express themselves by encouraging them to grow in whatever direction they are passionate about. The quality of our teaching, pastoral care the more ‘grown up’ environment is designed to support our pupils in finding the ideal pathway for their life ahead.


– Lynn Moses, Head of Sixth Form


Offering two years of intellectual stimulation and a wealth of experience and opportunity: the Sixth Form at Windermere School provides ideal preparation for life beyond school.


There is a good mix of boarders and day pupils, and boys and girls, with around 20 new pupils joining the Lower Sixth each year. The promotion of self-study skills and independent learning is central to the teaching and learning strategy, preparing pupils for Higher Education courses and the world of work.


In addition to their academic studies, pupils are encouraged to participate in the many social clubs and societies that flourish at the School. There is a wide range of adventure and challenge experiences on offer, as well as an impressive choice of activities in sports, drama and music – all woven into the school day. There really is something for everyone.


Windermere is an International Baccalaureate World School offering the IB Diploma Programme and the IB Career-Related Programme. IB World Schools share a common philosophy: a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education. We also offer IB Certificate courses and standalone vocational qualifications, to offer an educational pathway perfectly tailored to your needs.
