Trips and Expeditions
Experiences beyond the classroom are an important part of education at Whitgift. They inspire, bring subjects to life, raise global awareness and build life skills through challenges and immersive experiences.
Trips and exchanges are offered for every language on the curriculum at Whitgift: We have exchange schools in Berlin, Beijing, Munich, Nuremberg, Tokyo, Toulouse, Valencia and Zaragoza and have organised trips in the last five years to Shanghai, Hong Kong, Berlin, Dresden, Biarritz, Paris, Lyon, Granada and Bilbao. These opportunities are extremely valuable with pupils learning a huge amount about the culture of the languages they are studying, often making life-long friendships as well as improving their language skills.
Your son will also have the opportunity to visit sites of historic and cultural interest around the world, participate in international sports tours, experience live theatre and music and take part in science and mathematics olympiads, to name just a few.
The below map of the World shows a selection of the places that Whitgift students of all ages have visited in the past few years.
