Outdoor Education

Learn independence, resilience and leadership in wild and inspiring environments. 

Through exhilarating and shared experience, Whitgiftians develop a passion for the outdoors, adventure sport and the environment. Sports from surfing to mountain biking become lifelong hobbies and many pupils  return to the School to talk about their adventures post-Whitgift. 

"By taking a student out of their comfort zone and introducing them to new and exciting activities, we aim to have a positive influence on their overall development and hope that they leave the School with essential life skills as well as fond memories."

I have loved all the opportunities provided to me by the Outdoor Education department. I have been on expeditions as far as Greece and Portugal, learning and refining skills such as water sports.
