Junior Years

Your Guide to School Life

Welcome to Junior Years

In Junior Years (age 10-13), your son will discover a deep love of learning in an environment where his natural curiosity is encouraged to grow.

Throughout these early years, and beyond, he will be supported in line with his needs, growing in confidence as he learns new skills and develops strong working habits that will see him flourish here at Whitgift. 

He will learn to think critically and independently, to become a good listener as well as speaker, and to develop a global outlook that is socially aware. Digital literacy will also form a key component of his education, preparing him well for the challenges that lie ahead.

Outside the classroom, through our House system and broad co-curricular programme, he will have the opportunity to explore new interests alongside boys of different ages and backgrounds. As well as enriching his school life, and providing the opportunity to make long-lasting friendships, this will help your son develop a healthy confidence and teach him the values of respect, tolerance, and resilience. These values are central to the culture of our School community.
