Your Guide to Joining Whitgift Summer School

Welcome to Summer School

Whitgift Summer School runs an intensive English Language Course and is ideally located near Central London. It is the ideal place for students aged 11-16 to accelerate their English language learning. 

Whether you wish to improve your speaking, reading, listening or writing our intensive General English Course will help you achieve your goals. Classes are small with a maximum of 12 students in each tutor group, meaning each child’s academic progress is monitored carefully. We send detailed weekly reports to parents every week so that they are kept up to date with their child’s development.

Outside the classroom we offer an incredible selection of Academies & Activities. This year we will be offering: Football Academy, Tennis Academy, Golf Academy, Fencing Academy and Musical Theatre Academy. All our Academies are run by professional coaches. For a complete list of our what we offer on our Activity Programme, please click here.

In the afternoons, students benefit from having lessons with Native English Speakers. These students come from Whitgift School and Old Palace of John Whitgift and are proudly known as ‘Student Hosts’. These students also take part in the afternoon and evening activities meaning the international students speak English as much as possible and make friends for life.

Finally, the students go on two excursions a week to some of the most famous tourist sights the south of England has to offer: the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, London Zoo, Hampton Court Palace, Brighton, Oxford, Cambridge, Harry Potter Studios, Thorpe Park…

Our beautiful school with its fantastic facilities, stunning grounds, wildlife, modern boarding house and dedicated staff will make you feel at home immediately.
