Windermere School is celebrating the beginning of the academic year with the news that it has been placed near the top of the Sixth Form League Tables.
In the Saturday Times, the school was ranked 21st in a list of the top 250 independent schools in the country, while the Saturday Telegraph placed the school 37th in its list of the top 300 independent schools.
Headmaster Ian Lavender said he was delighted with the news, which follows a record year in terms of International Baccalaureate and BTEC results, as well as some very impressive GCSE and IGCSE results.
He added: “This achievement is made all the more impressive by the fact that, as a school, we remain steadfastly non-selective, yet our position in these tables places us well above some highly selective national institutions.
“I am extremely proud of the students and the staff, both at Browhead and Elleray, and would like to offer my congratulations to all involved.
“Windermere School has gone from being the best in region to one of the best nationally.”
The tables are compiled by the Independent Schools Council (ISC) and are based on figures collected from 452 schools across the country.
