Windermere School is unique. Set amidst the stunningly beautiful mountains and lakes of Cumbria, it delivers an exciting and forward-thinking curriculum, shaping the hearts and minds of the next generation. We aim to educate children to be capable and thoughtful, resourceful, courageous and caring. This is a school where young people can enjoy their schooldays and parents can be confident that their children are following the very best pathways to future success.

With adventurous learning at the heart of our provision, children learn vital skills that they take back into the classroom, as well as through life. Whether they are taking part in Forest School, Adventure lessons, performing on the outdoor stage, or studying wind speeds at the top of a lakeland fell, there is always challenge, fresh air and enjoyment.

As well as our innovative curriculum, which is designed to develop articulate and confident children, the one thing that makes Windermere truly special is the children themselves. The unique family atmosphere is evident the moment you walk through our blue front doors. Our children are proud of their school family and learn to look after themselves, and each other, within our caring community.

There is a warmth, vibrancy, and kindness at Windermere School, that makes it a very special place to learn and grow.

Why Choose Windermere Junior School?

  • The outdoors is as important as the indoors and both environments complement each other displaying natural resources and places in which to play, learn and discover.
  • Small class sizes enable our lively, energetic teachers to quickly form close relationships with children and parents.
  • A love of learning and an enthusiasm for challenges produces confident, highly motivated pupils who arrive every morning with a smile. It has been known that they even count the days off in the holidays until it is time to come back to school!
  • A space where children can be children. If children are happy and feel secure in a stimulating and active environment, they are more likely to embrace the challenges and possibilities that a school like Windermere provides.
  • Our innovative Adventure Programme starts from Year 3, and takes the form of adventure activities - sailing, paddle sports, climbing, caving, walking and biking. Children realise that they are capable of more than they could ever imagine. They are inspired to embrace challenges and become well-rounded, resilient, confident and independent thinkers, taking those skills with them into the classroom.
