Winchester College is committed to maintaining the founder’s original intention of offering a Winchester education to any boy who would benefit from it, regardless of their financial circumstances.

In 2017/2018 there were more than 130 boys in receipt of bursarial support, at a cost of £3.3million. Over time, we aim to be in a position to fund the equivalent of 10% of boys on full bursaries and a further 20% on an average of half a bursary.

The bursary offered to each family is means-tested and reflects individual circumstances. To allow the widest range of pupils to attend the school, awards range from 5% to 100% of the school fee, and for those on the largest bursaries, this may include additional support for a laptop, books, exam fees or trips.  

We also award Scholarships and Exhibitions for those boys with exceptional academic, musical or sporting talent. Unlike Bursaries, Scholarships and Exhibitions do not automatically carry a remission on school fees, however free individual tuition is provided for sportsmen and musicians.
