Wykehamists spend their formative years at a school that is known for its academic excellence, and a distinctive culture.  But what does that really mean to a teenage boy, and why do they love it here?

One of the best parts of being at the school is exploring the surrounding area, running up St Catherine's Hill or walking in the watermeadows.

Year 13

At Winchester there is such a strong sense of community. It isn't a huge school and feels almost like a home away from home. Staying indoors on a rainy day, chatting with friends, crowding around the radiator and sharing funny stories can be one of the most special experiences of your life.

Year 11

Winchester manages to be many things. It's old yet somehow feels modern, completely different but very quickly familiar, academic but sport thrives. Winchester gives you the freedom to explore the town and try any sport that catches your curiosity. From rowing to aikido or even rackets. Winchester lets you try new things and then, eventually, choose how you want to succeed.

Our Design Technology centre, known as Mill, is the best aspect of the entire school for me. Mill’s facilities include two 3D printers, a metalworks and welding section, a carpentry area with sanders and cutters. Not forgetting my personal favourite, the laser cutter.
