 Community Service

The College's Community Service programme provides an eclectic range of worthwhile activities for over 300 senior boys. Boys spend two hours each week volunteering in a range of stimulating and challenging environments. Our hope is that the boys will acquire a caring ethos, by engaging in weekly commitments of service to others, and that their volunteering will bring tangible benefits to the wider community.

Boys are involved in worthwhile projects in and around the city of Winchester, including conservation work with the Hampshire Wildlife Trust, clearing dishes at the Winchester Churches Night Shelter, demonstrating scientific experiments in primary schools, participating in garden maintenance in local schools, helping with creative work in special schools, teaching fly fishing to autistic children, assisting with meal feeding at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital, visiting elderly residents at local nursing homes, serving in charity shops, organising local science, chess and ceramics clubs for youngsters, nurturing
the dramatic skills of actors with learning difficulties at the Blue Apple Theatre, providing social activities at the Winchester Gateway Club for adults from MENCAP, entertaining community groups with CS Entertainers and CS Jazz groups, helping disabled swimmers, working front of house at the Winchester Museum, serving drinks to disadvantaged youngsters at the YMCA cafe and participating in community outreach. By engaging in a range of community activities
over three years, the boys learn to enjoy broadening their life skills for
the benefit of others.
