Winchester College has today announced the launch of a dedicated bursary for Sixth Form pupils, known as The Wykeham Award.
The Wykeham Award is a means-tested bursary for pupils who join the school in the Sixth Form and who are currently studying at a UK state secondary school. Available for boys and girls, and for those who would like to join as a day pupil or boarder, it can cover up to 100% of the school fees, as well as other associated expenses.
Candidates should be confident of excellent GCSE results and those with a talent in sport, music, the arts, or have a broad range of extra-curricular interests, are particularly encouraged to apply.
Luke, a recent bursary recipient commented, ‘‘Winchester gave me a lot of options. I don’t think I would be at the University of Edinburgh if it wasn’t for coming to Winchester and I wouldn’t have the connections I have now. I did Spanish and German and both of the teachers recommended that I go on the exchanges. My mum asked the school if they could fund it and they did - it was a really incredible experience.
A mother of a bursary recipient commented, “We never considered private school to be a possibility, but the bursary has given our son an educational journey that has been transformative. Winchester has the capacity to look at each child individually, to stimulate, support and challenge their interests, raise horizons and realise potential.”
Dr Tim Hands, Headmaster at Winchester College said, ‘The bursary provision at Winchester is one of the most generous in the country and is there to support any pupil who has the academic ability and ambition to make the most of an education here. We’re delighted to launch The Wykeham Award to encourage even more applicants to apply.’
