The way we are taught in our early years has a huge influence on our long-term love of learning and who we will become. Our Elleray Campus, nestled within almost 20 acres of Lake District countryside, offers 3-11 year olds the very best start on their educational journey. It provides children, not only with an inspirational environment within which they can learn and grow but also with the time to do so. It is only by providing time to explore, discover, make mistakes, ask questions and make connections that children can discover who they truly are and who they will become.
Our dedicated staff go the extra mile to ensure that every child is nurtured as an individual and is given the opportunity to develop their passions and interests to the full. Children can join Windermere School from their third birthday and as they move up through the junior school will take part in a vast range of activities and experiences, from plum-picking in the orchard and writing their own name for the very first time to Adventure lessons at our private Watersports Centre on Lake Windermere and baking cakes in the school kitchen.

'The first time my daughter and I visited the school she said to me “that is a happy school no question”'
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.
