The Lakes School Trips
The Lakes School has a fantastic reputation for organising trips to a wide range of places around the UK and beyond. Many of our trips support the curriculum and you can find out about our range of trips in the Your Year Group section of the website. We organise trips to places of cultural and historical interest along with ski trips and an exchange trip to Deissen, the twin town of Windermere.
Our enrichment days also see students travelling all over the country to a number of locations to enhance their learning. You can read more about our enrichment days in the enrichment section of our website.
Updates about our trips now appear on our school Facebook page which you can find by following this link or searching for The Lakes School Windermere UK.
