Primary School Project
More than 1,000 children spend a week at Whitgift each year as part of our Primary School Project, which celebrates its 21st anniversary this year.
Children from the local primary schools, accompanied by their teachers, spend a week immersed in some fascinating lessons, from programming robots to learning to play the bongos. Our aim is to help grow their passion for learning. We are pleased to have been able to share our facilities with over 25,000 local boys and girls in the twenty years the project has been running.
We currently have a full time member of staff running the programme and partner with around 35 schools annually. These partner schools are also invited to attend special performances like our Lower School Plays and our annual concert at Fairfield Halls.
