Windermere School values talent and ability in all disciplines in the curriculum. We therefore award scholarships to students starting in Years 7, 9 and 12.

Scholarships have the following values:

Years 7 – 8: £150 per year

Years 9 – 11: £250 per year

Years 12 – 13: £350 per year

Scholarships are not paid as cash or given as reductions in the school fees. They are given as credits to be
redeemed against school trips. This is to help enable all students to enjoy the wide range of extra-curricular opportunities on offer, whatever the financial means of the family. A separate application can be made for assistance with school fees but such applications for bursaries are made by the parents to the Finance office.

At Windermere School we offer Academic Scholarships for entry into Years 7, 9 and 12, and Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Music and Sport Scholarships for entry into Years 9 and 12. We also offer an International Scholarship for entry into any year and a Round Square Scholarship for entry into Year 12. All candidates for Scholarships must be present at Windermere School on the appropriate Scholarship Day, except those applying for the International or Round Square Scholarships.

The Headmaster will interview all candidates for Academic Scholarships. In some cases, these interviews may take place in the candidate’s current school. These interviews will be conducted within two weeks of the date of the examinations.

The Scholarship deadlines take place at the end of January each year. Please see our website for more information.
