Pembroke School has a long and emerging tradition of encouraging exchanges with overseas partner schools, St Cyprian’s School (Cape Town, South Africa) and Orchard College (Curicó, Chile).

The exchange program offers our students an immersive opportunity whereby they come to learn more about themselves through developing a strong connection with people in an international environment.

We trust our exchange students to serve as excellent ambassadors for Pembroke School. It is expected that all exchange students will want to make a positive impression and contribute in some meaningful ways to their host school. Thus, all students involved in an exchange are expected to do their best academically and to respect the traditions, routines, and structures of their host school. All exchange students are required to maintain a journal of their experiences from which they will develop a keynote presentation to peers and staff, sharing elements of their exchange upon their return; encouraging others to engage in this unique experience.

Please see below information about exchanges with each partnering school:
