The Bolles School has established a new partnership with Alleyn’s School in London for the Bolles-London Cultural Exchange Programme.

Named and founded by Shakespeare contemporary Edward Alleyn in 1619, the Dulwich-area school will receive Bolles students for 10 days beginning June 2023. The English students will travel to The Bolles School for their exchange experience for 10 days in April 2023.

Bolles facilitator Marie Kervin expects to launch the application process for those interested in participating soon. The program has capacity for 12 “lively, enthusiastic individuals ready to broaden their horizons and work in partnership with our English friends across the Pond,” Kervin said. The opportunity is open for rising sophomores and juniors.

While the actual exchange experiences begin in April 2023, shared collaboration and work partnerships will begin as soon as November 2022. Participating Bolles students will work with Alleyn’s students on a project that will span a semester and add to students’ GPA. Zoom, WhatsApp and Factime meetings for this work begin in November, with the actual project beginning in January. The final product will be showcased to an audience of important guests in June on-site in London.

During their London exchange, Bolles students will explore cultural heritage sights around the city as well as in Cambridge and Oxford. Visits to the Houses of Parliament are planned as well as the House of Lords and a meeting with the MP for Dulwich.
