What the school says...
St Swithuns School, Winchester is set on an impressive and attractive campus of over 45 acres overlooking open countryside, and offers girls excellent teaching, sporting and recreational facilities. The school offers day, weekly boarding and full boarding options. There is an adjoining Junior School for girls aged 3-11 and boys up to the age of 7 years.

What The Good Schools Guide saysTight community of supportive girls with a culture of ‘go for it’ rather than ‘too cool’ to join in eg minority of girls remain in normal clothes on dress up days. Flip side of this is the pressure for good results that they can exert on each other. Boarders and day pupils retreat to different houses for break but all eat together at lunch, and head girl team blogs, runs the school forum and instigates a school wide and term long game of tag.
