School description

The independent private boarding school King Edward's Witley is located in the small village of Whitney (Surrey, almost on the border with Sussex county, southeast England) and takes on boys training and girls from 11 to 18 years, including foreign students. Road to London will take approximately 1 hour. Here is adopted as a day form, and training on the scheme of full boarding (with accommodation).

The history of the educational institution is quite entertaining. The year of foundation is 1553: training classes for children of poor people were organized in London. Unfortunately, they burned down during the famous Great Fire of London, together with the hospital in which they worked - since then the school has moved repeatedly until it finally settled in Wheatley (1867). Together with training, boys mastered crafts, army service, they wore military uniforms and even slept in hammocks! During the Second World War, the secret scientific laboratory of the Navy worked on the basis of the school: a powerful radar was developed here, which allows determining the location of enemy ships and submarines, which played an important role during the sea Atlantic battles. After the end of the war, they took a joint form of training (they began to enlist girls), and today King Edward's Witley School is on the list of the best in England. In addition, it is one of the largest boarding schools in the whole country.

The total number of students reaches 500, approximately half of them are full-board students and permanently live in residences on campus. International students make up about 20% of the total number of children, these are representatives of more than 40 countries.
