“My exchange to England provided an incredible opportunity for personal growth, facilitated by the wealth of new experiences I gained.”
PLC Sydney has formal exchange partnerships with three schools in England:
Ripley St Thomas Academy
Year 10 students spend four (4) to six (6) weeks immersed in English culture, attending school and participating in family winter activities. Students also have the opportunity to travel to surrounding areas, taking in sites of historical and cultural importance. Set in the northern city of Lancaster, it is near the beautiful Lakes District.
'Established in 1864, coeducational Ripley has a long tradition of academic excellence, with the School placed in the top 5% of secondary schools nationally and featuring in the Department of Education list of ‘Outstanding Schools’.'
'Year 10 students spend five (5) weeks at one of the UK’s top girls’ schools. PLC Sydney students attend boarding school through the week and participate in family activities with host families at weekends.' Bristol is very close to the delightful city of Bath. An historic school, it is similar to PLC Sydney.
King William's College
'Year 10 students spend four (4) to six (6) weeks at a co-educational school at Castletown, set on the Isle of Man, across the Irish Sea, close to the United Kingdom mainland. PLC Sydney students attend boarding school and participate in boarding school planned activities at weekends with their host sisters.' There is the chance to explore the history of the island.
