Volunteers from across the school community are working hard to support those across the city of Winchester. Winchester College provided PPE to local organisations and is now the main responder for Winchester City Council's Response Team and supports the NHS Telehealth Service at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital.
Working in partnership with Trinity Winchester and the Salvation Army, school staff make microwaveable meals for vulnerable people in the city, producing and delivering 75 meals, two days a week.
The school has continued its primary maths and other learning programmes to local pupils, via online programmes.
Understanding different cultures and cultivating a sensitivity to the world around you has always been the foundation of a Winchester education.
The Charities Committee is a group of seventeen Sixth Form boys led by the don in charge.
Winchester provides practical support and enrichment opportunities to other schools in the region on an individual school basis
One of our charitable aims is the preservation of the many ancient buildings and their contents. Winchester College maintains eighteen Grade I, six Grade II* and over seventy Grade II listed buildings. Many of these are of national importance and are available to visit through our daily guided tours or through access to our collections and archives.
The school is hugely fortunate in having extensive grounds of approximately 250 acres, including 100 acres of ancient water meadows; 4.5 miles of the River Itchen; 52 acres of playing fields and 11 acres of formal gardens. Many of the grounds maintained by the school are either a public access area, Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) or Special Area of Conservation. The Fallodon Nature Reserve is an SSSI and the main River Itchen with its carriers is a Special Area of Conservation. St. Catherine’s Hill is a public access area and is leased to the Hampshire Wildlife Trust.
