Applications for Student Hosts Now Open

Applications for students to take part in the Whitgift Summer School are now open.

Pupils currently at Old Palace in Years 9-12 can apply to act as hosts in this year’s International Summer School, which is scheduled to take place between 9 July and 20 August 2023. The programme caters for 11 to 17-year-old boys and girls from all over the world, who study on General English or Pre-IB preparation courses and partake in exciting and engaging sporting, creative and social activities alongside our Student Hosts – Old Palace pupils, and boys from Whitgift School.

This is a fantastic opportunity Old Palace students in Years 9 -12 to develop their cultural awareness, learn invaluable communication and leadership skills, and form long-lasting international friendships in an enjoyable, supportive and positive environment. Applications will open on 31 March and full details will be sent out separately about how to apply to take part in the Summer School as a Student Host.
