Winchester has developed sustained, individual partnerships with a number of secondary schools and sixth form colleges in the region, built on a continuing educational dialogue and a sharing of resources, personnel and opportunity.
Staff and governors share their expertise and dedication to education. Young Winchester teachers spend part of their training for GTQ at Midhurst whilst Winchester helps with their students' practice for university interviews. Additional tuition is given to Midhurst Rother Year 10 and 11 pupils at Winchester, especially in mathematics and science. There are regular sports fixtures and joint activities to strengthen the partnership.
Winchester provides mock Oxbridge interviews, curriculum support, and specialist subject teachers to contribute to Barton Peveril’s Aspire programme, lecturing on topics from Cancer biology to Cryptography.
Winchester runs weekly fly-fishing sessions in the summer term for pupils with autism from Osborne School. The pupils receive instruction from a qualified fly-fishing coach and are supported by Winchester boys.
Winchester has an ongoing relationship with the Crown and Manor Club, a boys club in Hoxton, East London. The club offers a community space for boys aged 7 to 25, as well as a variety of sporting and academic activities. First started in 1903, the club greatly expanded under the influence of two Old Wykehamists, Arthur and Harold Llewellyn Smith, and took its current name when it moved into the disused Crown public house. Now in new premises, Old Wykehamists serve on the council and help in the homework club. Crown and Manor also play a soccer fixture at Winchester College.
Winchester offers mock interviews to sixth form students from across southern England, to help with university entrance, often tailored to the specific requirements of Oxbridge or medicine, for example.
Every February and October the school hosts a mathematical lecture, aimed at secondary and sixth formers students but open to all. Details are shared on the school's social media channels.
