St. Swithun’s School

Location and main ethos
Located in Winchester, St Swithun’s School has a long-standing reputation for academic rigour.

The benefits of boarding
Weekly and full boarding options are available at the School. Boarders at St Swithun’s often comment that boarding is their favourite element of school-life. Full boarders make up just under a third of our boarders.

A host of activities are offered at weekends. Boarders are expected to fully contribute to the School’s boarding community and to seek to improve it for the benefit everyone.

Pastoral care of the highest order for girls
Every girl is cared for by her housemistress or housemaster and her form tutor, who are supported by heads of year. Girls work together to forge supportive relationships with other girls of all ages throughout the School. Together, the whole school community provides a pastoral support framework which caters for the needs of both boarding and day pupils.
