“Winchester College is committed to supporting pupils with a wide range of Special Educational Needs. Within our context, these will typically include pupils with specific learning difficulties (particularly those with dyslexia and dyspraxia), AD(H)D issues, ASD, a hearing impairment, a visual disability, hypermobility, and slow processing”
Winchester has its own unique admissions process. We look for boys with enquiring minds and natural intelligence. Our founder’s ethos was to educate such boys, whatever their background, hence our generous bursary provision. Experienced staff assist in every stage of the process, from initial inquiry through to choosing a house, to sitting the entrance exams.

“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.
I hope that you will accept this invitation to visit Winchester to see these wonderful qualities in action. It is a truly remarkable place and school, and it will be a privilege to welcome you here.
