Round Square prepares young people for life through service, challenge, adventure and international understanding.

Students attending Round Square schools make a strong commitment - beyond academic excellence to personal development and responsibility. In short students are empowered to be the leaders and guardians through community service, work projects, exchange programmes and adventure.

Each year exchange programmes are initiated around the world by Round Square member schools to help institutionally and culturally different - but like minded schools - to work together to improve the quality of life for people. The result is the understanding that each one of us can make a positive difference as global citizens and the exchange programmes are wonderful opportunties for our students to grow and develop individually.

At St Philip's our students can participate in a two week national exchange in Year 8, and in Year 10 they can apply to go on an International exchange (approx. for one term). There is a stringent application process for the international exchange program which is facilitated by our Head of Round Square, Mrs Sarah Pollitt, other teachers and student Senior Round Square Committee member.

For more information about our exchange programs please contact Mrs Sarah Pollitt.


In recent years senior French students have participated in a separate exchange program with Lycee International Francois 1er. The College was privileged to have Miss Sylvie Leger and four of her students attend St Philip's during 2017. We hope this relationship continues.
