Old Palace of John Whitgift School is a leading independent day school for girls aged 4-18. The school prides itself on empowering girls to become well-rounded, compassionate, young women who are well equipped for the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow. Old Palace provides an outstanding education for its students, preparing them for success in university and beyond. The school is committed to ensuring that each girl reaches her full potential, academically, socially, and emotionally. In addition to providing a rigorous academic curriculum, the school offers a wide range of extracurricular activities and opportunities for personal growth and development including music, sport, dance, drama and so much more. Old Palace is a supportive and inclusive community where girls can thrive and reach their highest aspirations.
It is with great sadness and the deepest regret that the Court of Governors of the John Whitgift Foundation has announced its intention to close Old Palace of John Whitgift School in 2025, with some year groups (Pre-School, Reception, Years 7, 10, and 12) closing in August 2024.
