St Swithun's School



In their own words

St Swithun’s is a flourishing independent girls’ school set in 45 acres of rural Hampshire within easy walking distance of Winchester city centre, yet only 50 minutes by train from London. It has a co-ed preschool, educates girls aged from 4-11 in its prep school, and offers day, weekly and full boarding options for girls aged 11-18 in the senior school.

It offers excellent and forward-thinking teaching practice, sporting and recreational facilities and is supported by a thriving community of parents, alumni and financial donors.


The school is a registered charity and is governed by the school council. Main entry points to the senior school are 11+, 13+ and 16+. The prep school accepts registrations for any year group where there are spaces available, up to the point of entry. There are approximately 200 girls in the prep school and 520 in the senior school across 27 nationalities.

" Relationships between pupils are characterised by kindness and sensitivity, as observed within boarding house life as well as between day and boarding pupils. They see themselves as important members of a cohesive school family. Pupils have an enormous affection for this family of which they are part. "
