Global Outlook

Whitgift  provides its pupils with outstanding international opportunities and aspires to continually develop its global reach, international understanding and worldwide reputation. This commitment is especially reflected in the School’s leading International Baccalaureate provision, its broad Modern Foreign Languages’ programme and the innovative Junior Years Global Citizenship curriculum.

Our student community is richly diverse and is enhanced through the thriving community of international boarders. We also have strong links and partnerships with prominent schools around the world, including Urawa in Japan, and all our students are provided with a wealth of opportunities to develop their cultural awareness through excursions, exchanges and involvement in the international Summer School.  

As we look to the future, Whitgift continues to strive towards providing our pupils with further opportunities to learn from different cultures and make a difference globally.

Please take a moment to explore some of our exciting international projects and initiatives.
