What is involved?


  • The registration forms, and deadlines for applying, are set out in our admissions timelines:
  • A non-refundable fee of £400 is paid on registering.

Acceptance of conditional offer       

  • For those pupils joining us in Year 9, a fee of £2,000 is paid when you accept the conditional offer of a place by 1 July of Year 6. This fee will be refunded through the Spring Term invoice in your child’s first year but is non-refundable if you subsequently decline the place.


  • A deposit is paid in November of Year 8 on acceptance of your child’s place. For UK citizens, the deposit is £4,000, and for non-UK citizens, the deposit is one term's fee. The deposit will be refunded within four months of your child leaving the school, less any outstanding fees or extras if applicable.


For 2023/24, the fees are as follows:

  • The fee for Boarding pupils is £49,152 per annum (£16,384 per term).
  • The fee for Day pupils (Sixth Form Only) is £36,369 per annum (£12,123 per term).

For 2024/25, the fees are as follows:

  • The fee for Boarding pupils is £51,855 per annum (£17,285 per term).
  • The fee for Day pupils (Sixth Form Only) is £38,367 per annum (£12,789 per term).

Fees in advance scheme

  • Once an offer letter has been received, confirming your child's place at the school, a lump sum may be paid in advance of your child’s entry, covering up to five years of fees for the school, and providing a discount on the full fees. Contact the finance team for more information. 

Child Student Visa

  • For pupils starting at Winchester from September 2025 onwards, an annual charge of £1,200 will be payable for each pupil requiring Winchester College to support a Child Student Visa or Student Visa application. This charge covers the additional costs to the school of supporting those pupils, including Visa applications, administration, monitoring and reporting requirements. The school must adhere to these compliance standards as set out by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) as a condition of its continued ability to support student visa applications.
  • For existing pupils and those starting in September 2024, the £1,200 charge above does not apply. However, a charge of £550 will be payable for each Child Student Visa application during your time at the school.

Microsoft Surface

  • A Microsoft Surface device is required for all pupils. The school will provide the device at point of joining and the cost of the device will spread across your first three bills.

Financial Support

  • Winchester offers financial support for any child who would benefit from an education here, but whose family is unable to afford the full fees. We also award Scholarships and Exhibitions for those pupils with exceptional academic, musical or sporting talent. Unlike Bursaries, Scholarships and Exhibitions do not automatically carry a remission on school fees. However free individual tuition is provided for sports scholars and musicians.
