Windermere Preparatory School Logo Windermere School Elleray Campus

The School is located on the Elleray estate, overlooking Windermere and the Fells beyond, including the Langdales, Scafell and Coniston Old Man and just down the hill is our own lakeside water-sports centre. These are all an important part of our academic classroom. We seek to inspire the children in everything they do. We want every child to enjoy every minute at school and to build a desire to pursue and achieve excellence. Our aim is to develop confident, free thinking and ambitious individuals who are not just prepared for the next stage of their education but for life.

We have experienced so many benefits from this approach, offering an engaging and relevant timetable of lessons that extends the pupils academically, creatively and physically; importantly, they also have fun. In Year 6, pupils experience The Elleray Exhibition, a culmination of all the knowledge and skills they have gained so far vital to our success is the way we individually track children through their time here, in a way that can easily be understood and very much includes the pupils, teachers and parents. This approach gives us all confidence that all pupils are working hard and making good progress.

We also offer a broad range of after-school activities, a majority at no extra charge, which most pupils stay for each day, including a variety of sports, arts & crafts and music. We also encourage pupils to be involved in the organisation of the school, giving them a chance to assume responsibility and make decisions, in a friendly environment. We believe that it is by taking advantage of these opportunities that each child can find his or her own area of expertise and meet with success. In this way, the confidence of the child grows so that bigger challenges can be met in the future.
