About the school

Long description:

The Lower School has a tradition of outstanding attainment in academic work, drama, etc. In sport, Whitgift boys have gained a strong reputation for the exceptional standards they achieve, having won a series of major national cup competitions.

On joining at age 10 or 11, boys are fully integrated into the main school and use all its facilities, but they also enjoy the benefit of having an attractive, modern, purpose-built classroom block as their base with its own library, study area and computer facilities. This enables an ideal transition from the more intimate environment of a primary or preparatory school to the larger community at senior school level.

Boarding offers students the chance to experience all aspects of Whitgift’s provision to the fullest extent. Our boarders enjoy superb facilities and live within beautiful grounds, yet are very close to central London and the extensive national and international transport network. The School Prospectus introduces, in more detail, the wonderful, inspirational education available at Whitgift, our unique, tailor-made curriculum and the brilliance of our sport, music and co-curricular programme.

Dorm Facilities: Whitgift attracts pupils who may have to travel great distances to the School. In addition, these are often pupils who are heavily committed to co-curricular activities before and after school. Boarding will provide these boys with the chance to realise their full potential.

Full boarding

A full boarder’s school life will be enhanced by living and studying on campus. Whitgift has a rich offering of clubs and societies, sports, music, drama and outdoor pursuits; and, in addition, there will be numerous activities for boarders after school and at weekends.  Whitgift is ideally located for the many attractions London has to offer, as well as being close to the Surrey countryside.

Friends and family are welcome to visit, to take a full and active part of the boarder’s life.

Weekly boarding

Weekly boarding entails four nights’ accommodation, usually Monday to Thursday. This option relieves any arduous daily commute and gives boys more time for studying and to be involved in co-curricular activities, while still allowing for family time at the weekend. A fifth night, depending on school demands, is an available option.

Weekly boarders will have their own living space and their school possessions will be secure from one week to the next.


Flexi-boarding is available to help accommodate the busy lifestyle of the modern family, and is ideal for pupils with co-curricular activities which finish late, or start early, on any given day. In addition, it will also accommodate those pupils whose parents need to travel extensively for work.

Pupils are also encouraged to try flexi-boarding to see if full boarding might be something that suits their needs later in their school career.

Summer Programs

Whitgift runs its own Summer School, utilising all its fantastic facilities and new boarding house. This Summer School, with its innovative syllabus and focus on the use of English in Action, is designed to appeal to girls and boys from all over the world. In English language course, students in the Lower School (11 – 14 years) and the Upper School (14-17 years) learn  in small groups, and, through immersion, develop confidence and fluency in their English language skills. To ensure communication continues in English, careful consideration is given to the balance of participating nationalities. Whitgift´s superb facilities are utilised for an exciting and varied sports and creative activities programme, in which students can deploy their newly-learned English skills. Through team and group work, pupils develop social skills,

Teachers, activity leaders and houseparents all encourage interaction with other students, and ensure integration in order to help them become part of the Whitgift Summer School family. In each department – academic, activities and welfare – there is a core of year-round Whitgift School staff who help ensure that the extremely high standards of Whitgift School are maintained during the summer. Whitgift’s unique and very desirable location provides easy access to some of the world’s most important tourist sights. Linking these trips to syllabus promotes a significant understanding of British history and culture; the learning generated through these excursions is one of Whitgift Summer School’s defining features.

Students are completely immersed in English throughout the day and evening. The English language is at the centre of all lessons and activities at Whitgift Summer School.

The School have developed two unique courses;

General English Skills

and English Exam Skills

Both of these courses combine English language lessons with using English in our carefully-balanced English in Action lessons.

Students from both courses study together for two hours of each morning and then study separately for the next hour. They come together again for English in Action classes in the afternoon.
