Winchester College is proud to be partnered with 17 state secondary schools in Hampshire and along the south coast, including:
The Empower program provides a sustained program of enrichment, aiming to raise aspirations and provide unique opportunities to pupils from our partner secondary schools.
The partnership involves visits to Winchester College and to our partner schools. Sessions are led by Winchester dons who are top in their field and passionate about their subjects. Over 40 teachers, technicians and other staff support the program.
Our partner schools rate these activities as good or excellent and score the sessions 4.7 out of 5 in terms of the impact they have on students.
Students involved in the Empower Program have successfully applied for places at our sixth form which has day places for boys and girls.
The Wykeham Award provides bursary support to enable pupils from all backgrounds to join – see our sixth form admissions for more details.

"For the past two years we have been collaborating with Winchester College. The partnership has provided our year 10 students with a fantastic variety of experiences and opportunities that would not have been otherwise available to our young people. Our students have taken part in everything from rowing on the River Itchen, to attending evening lectures and discussing philosophy with college dons. The impact on our students has been obvious and will hopefully leave them with fond memories no matter their next steps in life."
- Jack Pollard, Teacher at Park Community School
