Outside study time, pupils have a huge choice of extra-curricular activities, clubs and societies within which to find like minds and fresh challenges. Many are founded and run by the boys themselves. Whether broadening or intensifying their interests, Winchester pupils can take part in a busy and stimulating range of activities that enriches their studies and their school life throughout the year.

We actively encourage pupils to participate in as many societies and activities as they feel able to manage. Many take on responsibilities within these groups and gain much useful experience in learning how to organise and run them. They make lasting friendships and enjoy taking part.
