Windermere International Summer School

Welcome to Windermere School, an institution that transcends traditional language education, offering a unique and inspiring learning experience. Situated in the heart of captivating landscapes, Windermere School, known as The World’s Most Inspiring Classroom, provides an unparalleled setting for academic and personal growth.

Inspiring Environment:
Nestled on a hillside within 45 acres of the National Park landscape that inspired literary figures like Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, Windermere School boasts arguably the best school view in the world. Our three woodland campuses, including a private Watersports Centre, harmoniously blend academic, boarding, and sporting facilities.

Community-Centric Learning:
Windermere School is more than an educational institution; it’s a community where every individual finds their place. With small class sizes and a personalized teacher-to-child ratio, we prioritize a tailored approach to learning and exceptional pastoral care. Here, individuality is celebrated, creating an environment conducive to academic excellence and personal development.

Adventure as a Way of Life:
Adventure is not just an activity at Windermere School; it’s a way of life. Outdoor Learning is seamlessly integrated into our curriculum, especially in the Junior School, where 40% of learning takes place outside the classroom. These experiences cultivate invaluable life skills like self-awareness, independence, motivation, confidence, empathy, resilience, and determination, fostering a growth mindset within our students.

IB Curriculum:
Our commitment to holistic education is reflected in our adoption of the International Baccalaureate Programme (IB), a rigorous two-year, internationally recognized qualification. This program transcends pure academics, providing students with key transferable life skills essential for success beyond the school gates.

Private Watersports Centre:
Privileged to have our Watersports Centre, Hodge Howe, less than a mile from the main Senior School campus, we offer a unique facility at the heart of our Outdoor Learning Programme. Recognized as a Royal Yachting Association Youth Sailing Club, Hodge Howe provides students with opportunities to learn sailing, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing, wild swimming, survival skills, map reading, team-building exercises, and first aid qualifications.

International Diversity:
As a Round Square School, we celebrate diversity and an international mindset. Welcoming students from over 25 nationalities, Windermere School encourages the exploration of similarities and differences between countries and cultures, fostering lasting transnational understanding and respect.

English as a Foreign Language (EFL):
Our commitment to linguistic diversity extends to English as a Foreign Language (EFL) courses. Taught by professional EFL teachers, students undergo placement tests upon arrival to gauge their English proficiency. Classes, capped at ten students, focus on improving written, verbal, and comprehension skills through various lessons and external trips. The courses complement our adventure and sailing program, creating an environment where students, alongside UK peers, gain the confidence to speak and make new friends easily.

Windermere School goes beyond conventional education, creating an environment where the world becomes a classroom, adventure becomes a lifestyle, and linguistic diversity is celebrated. Join us at Windermere School and experience an educational journey that transcends borders and opens doors to a world of possibilities.
