St Swithun's School is a renowned girls’ day, weekly and full-boarding school in 45 acres overlooking the Hampshire Downs on the outskirts of Winchester, yet only 50 minutes by train from central London. It offers excellent teaching, sporting and recreational facilities.
The school has a long-standing reputation for academic rigour. Girls are prepared for public examinations in a stimulating and scholarly environment and develop intellectual curiosity, independence of mind and responsibility for their own learning. They achieve almost one grade higher at GCSE than their baseline ability and half a grade at A level with a quarter of results a full grade higher. St Swithun’s offers a comprehensive careers and higher education service, Oxbridge preparation and an academic enrichment programme providing additional stimulation.
There is an extensive co-curricular programme enabling girls to try new things and develop commitment, perseverance, teamwork and organisational skills.
Teaching facilities are modern and well-equipped with specialist art, design, music, performing arts and sports facilities including a full-size indoor swimming pool and spacious grounds.
With kindness and tolerance at the heart of its community, St Swithun’s provides a civilised and caring environment where girls learn courage, compassion, commitment and self-confidence with a love of learning, a moral compass and a sense of humour.
