College Street , Winchester , Hampshire , SO23 9NA


Winchester College, founded by William of Wykeham in 1382, is one of the world’s most famous and distinguished schools. The College is defined by its motto, Manners Makyth Man. This motto is hundreds of years old but has a surprisingly modern spirit. Its sentiment is that we should be measured not by birth but by our personal qualities, a surprisingly meritocratic sentiment for a school that was founded in 1382. Its language may sound old-fashioned to a modern ear, but it was radically progressive in its time because it was written not in Latin but in a dynamic, up-and-coming language: English.

Today, Manners Makyth Man inspires the key qualities of Character, Conversation, Curiosity, Foresight and Leadership.

At Winchester, pupils receive more than an excellent academic education. Understanding, encouragement and individual attention are just as important.

Life at Winchester is focused on individuals developing the confidence to contribute to a close-knit community.

Providing a comfortable home is essential if pupils are to make the most of the unique education we offer. Pupils eat in their house each mealtime, talking with their Housemaster, friends and teachers. We believe that conversational ability, developed both inside and outside the classroom, equips them to talk to anyone, in any situation,about practically anything.
