The Spanish Society's aim is to expand the exposure to Spanish and Latin American literature and culture for boys in the fourth and fifth years who are studying Advanced Level Spanish and who display an interest in exploring Spanish beyond the bounds of the syllabus. Boys applying for Oxbridge entry in Spanish are strongly advised to join but membership is not exclusive, the main reason for joining being enjoyment and the desire to expand knowledge.

Attendance is by invitation according to the piece to be read and varies from meeting to meeting. The Society meets about four times a year, sometimes with an invited guest from outside Winchester, to read a play or short story in Spanish to the accompaniment of a glass of wine and other Spanish-style refreshment. Meetings are held in the houses of dons from the Spanish Department.
