Online applications for 2017 entry

As an alternative to submitting hard copies of the application forms it is possible to apply online. If applying for a scholarship, please note that the Whitgift Application Form and any scholarship application form(s) should be submitted at the same time.

In order to apply online it will be necessary to have access to a scanner as you will be required to upload various documents such as copies of your son’s last three school reports, a copy of his passport (and visa if applicable), a photograph of your son and any additional relevant documentation (e.g. educational psychologist’s report, testimonials from sports coaches, music tutors etc.).  Payment of the entrance fee will also need to be made online either via PayPal or via bank transfer.  If paying by bank transfer it will be necessary to upload proof of payment.
