Boarding: Welcome from the Housemaster

It is my steadfast belief that a boarding education is the ‘best’ education. I am delighted that you are considering sending your son to board at Whitgift.

Entrusting your son to us is an enormous decision. My promise is to ensure your son is cared for in a relaxed, warm and friendly atmosphere, with a guarantee that each boarder and his parents will always have a friendly face to turn to for advice and guidance.

Whilst in our care, your son will be challenged to be the best he can be, whether inside or outside the classroom. Whitgift prides itself on the quality of the all-round education its pupils receive, where the development of character is as important as an excellent academic record. Society needs bright, hardworking and inventive people, but it also needs selfless, honest and honourable people too. At Whitgift we educate and nurture the ‘whole’ person, stressing virtues and values, whilst teaching pupils to think independently. Boarding at Whitgift will empower your son and prepare him for success in all aspects of his life.

I do hope you will wish to visit Whitgift and see for yourself what we can offer your son.

Mr Richard Murray
Boarding Housemaster
