The Winchester College program was established in 2014. All seniors are welcome to apply. Four students are selected.
The students attend Winchester College for three weeks during January term.
Winchester College, founded in 1382, is a boys’ boarding school in the medieval cathedral town of Winchester, an hour south of London. Over the last four years, sixteen GFS students have studied in Winchester, accompanied by GFS faculty from different disciplines. Students attend classes, play sports, and engage in all activities at the boarding school, and also have the opportunity to spend a weekend in London.
The GFS/Winchester travel program is part of the Directed Independent Study Program and grew out of the Penn Global Forum at the Graduate School of Education in 2013, where representatives of fourteen high schools from around the world discussed global initiatives.
Here is the information sheet for the January 2018 Winchester College program.
Anne Gerbner, English teacher and Director of Independent Studies, is the director and organizer of this program.
