Within the walls of Winchester College, pupils find a safe and inspiring world. Pupils are encouraged to expand their horizons and participate in school trips. Some form part of academic courses, such as Modern Foreign Languages or History, and occur during term. Most optional trips take place during the school holidays.
Any necessary vaccinations are usually given in the medical centre.
Financial support, particularly for trips considered an essential part of the normal curriculum, may be available. Please visit our Bursaries page for more information.
