Exchanges and Tours

We are focused on preparing our students to be well prepared to engage in an increasingly global society where they will encounter competition for jobs and business opportunities.  Our global connections programme is designed to give our boys an appreciation and understanding of countries and cultures other than our own, starting here on campus with our international students. By exposing our boys to a range of cultures in a variety of ways they can begin to build networks with individuals and organisations in these countries.

“Every-one that was lucky enough to have gone on this trip will surely agree with me when I say that this trip is one that you will not want to have pass by. The trip itself will change your mind-set upon the outside world. It will open you up to new and amazing food, a new atmosphere, culture and religion that may not feel natural to many of us in this room. ”

Academic Exchanges

Each year we provide boys with the opportunity to travel to different countries and experience life in a foreign school environment. Boys benefit by learning about new cultures, improving foreign language skills and becoming more aware global citizens. In most cases boys are billeted with host families, with the expectation that they will host a student from the partner school when it is our turn to host.

St Christopher's School

Richmond, Virginia

"In Washington we saw the sights of the Smithsonian Museum, the White House, Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. Both of which were pretty big, like almost every other building in Washington. Other big things included their pickup trucks."

Jamie Dearden (2016 trip)

Montgomery Bell Academy

"From the massive grounds and exceptional sports facilities, the teachers and teaching facilities, the MBA culture and study disciplines to the city life of Nashville – all something that I will remember for the rest of my life."
