William of Wykeham’s focus on service pervades the school’s long history. Through our community relationships, pupils learn the value of service to others and broaden their life skills to bring tangible benefits to the wider community.
Winchester's Community Service programme partners with 40 external organisations in the City of Winchester and Southern Hampshire, and involves more than 400 pupils and 50 dons. 20,000 hours of voluntary work are provided on an annual basis.
