What is the
Wykeham Award

HOW THE BURSARY PROGRAMME CAN HELP YOU

The Wykeham Award is a pathway to a first class education

We do not have a preconceived idea about what a Winchester College pupil looks like, and nor should you. We were founded by a visionary who recognised the importance of education and service regardless of background. And that is what we look for – those who have the intellectual spark and curiosity to take advantage of everything the school has to offer, and the drive and determination to give something back.

"The Wykeham Award is a means-tested bursary for pupils who join us in the Sixth Form and are currently studying at a UK state secondary school."

It is available for boys and girls, and for those who would like to join us as a day pupil or boarder. It can cover up to 100% of the school fees, as well as other associated expenses.

Candidates should be confident of excellent GCSE results and those with a talent in sport, music, the arts, or have a broad range of extra-curricular interests, are particularly encouraged to apply.
