Windermere School Reviews

Average Rating:


“11 years at Windermere school”
"> Windermere school excels on all levels It is a caring ,exciting, challenging and joyful school. My child has flourished with the care and attention she has received from this school. She is now a well-rounded, intelligent 14 yr old . Her experiences at the school have involved a wide range of activities including trips to Barcelona to sing Mozart's Requiem in Latin with the choir around the Cathedrals. She has gained grade 5 ABRSM flute exams and trophies for solo flute performance at Mary Wakefield festival. She has gone caving in Scotland, diving in Tenerife, and 2-star kayaking on Windermere. To top it all she is successful academically . The school has instilled a healthy respect for authority, manners and a confident composure which gives her a head start to take a caring place in adult society. I am so grateful to all at Windermere school for the huge successes they continue to make every year.
