CHALLENGE & BALANCE

Sport brings challenge, and a vital balance to academic life. Every afternoon, pupils can participate in a wide range of sporting opportunities. Our coaching staff consists of former international players and professionals, as well as current county and district level coaches. Their expertise and enthusiasm readies pupils to represent their sport at regional, county, national and international level.

FOOTBALL

Catering for all abilities, there are many school as well as house teams for pupils to compete in. Regular training sessions throughout the week prepare players for a full and varied fixture list.

We have superb pitches and excellent ground staff. A large number of dons bring their enthusiasm and experience into play to support a footballing community that permeates the entire school. All work together around our first full-time Soccer Professional, Jason Dodd, former Club Captain and Director of the Player Academy at Southampton FC.

Sports Scholarships

Those with exceptional sporting talent are given maximum support and encouragement at Winchester. Our Sports Scholarships have been set up to bring out the best in pupils who demonstrate exceptional ability on the football or cricket pitch. We also consider pupils who show great promise in other sports including rowing, golf, hockey, tennis, squash/rackets, athletics and martial arts. 

FUTURE WINS

The school’s PE Centre and indoor sporting facilities, based at Kingsgate Park, are undergoing a significant transformation and improvement.

The redevelopment of the PE Centre to create a state-of-the-art complex will allow all our pupils to enjoy and participate in a variety of sports whilst simultaneously enabling the most talented and driven pupils to train and compete at the highest level.

Members of the public will be able to join the Wykeham Sports Club and use the facilities when the new complex opens and can register their interest via the link below.
