2021

All the boys in Year 8 have made a successful transition to their senior school, whether through Common Entrance, scholarship or Winchester Entrance. 

Scholarship news

Pilgrims’ boys won 15 awards this year – over a third of the total number of leavers.  With six boys ‘On Roll’ at Winchester College (four Scholarships and two Exhibitions) we had our strongest performance at the College since 2011.  Nine boys won music awards, with three Scholarships and two Exhibitions at Winchester, a Scholar at each of Sherborne and Harrow, and two Exhibitions to Eton.  This continues the music department’s consistently high record of success.  From Pilgrims’ boy went on to Winchester College, Eton, Sherborne, Radley, Wellington, Marlborough, Harrow, Bradfield, Bedales, Sevenoaks, RGS, as well as local state schools.

Our Location

We are blessed with a truly idyllic location. Just an hour south of London by direct train, with easy access to all the major travel hubs, and yet we are surrounded by the stunning countryside of the South Downs National Park. The school is tucked away between Winchester Cathedral and Winchester College, within the secure and secluded Cathedral Close. Moments from our front door is the heart of the historic city of Winchester, or step through our back gate to find water meadows, countryside, and the South Downs Way.
