The campus (its area reaches 18 hectares) is located in the southeast suburb of London (Croydon region) - the center can be reached in just 40 minutes.

The school was founded by the Archbishop of Canterbury, John Whitgift in 1596 and still bears his name. The school is the oldest in its district: from the very beginning, it had the goal of educating boys from failed families, but with great talents and excellent abilities. Today, children can study in the institution, regardless of origin, nationality, religion and religious denomination, and the school itself is recognized as one of the best in England. The quality of academic education is easily assessed by the success of graduates: they choose the best, most prestigious and ranking universities for higher education - so, over the past 10 years, more than 200 graduates of Whitgift School have entered Oxbridge.
