    Last Friday was one of the seminal days in the Prep school calendar. The Common Entrance boys finished their final exam. Firstly, well done to all of you; we are very proud of you. The results are all now in and shared with the boys – what a wonderful set of performances. Secondly, well done to all the other boys, who have waited supportively these last few unusual weeks whilst they wait for their mates to be free too!

  • What is academic success?

    Published 06/05/22, by Angela Slater

    I've recently had time to reflect on what academic success means. To see Year 8s, some of whom I have known for a very long time, wait nervously for their results in the cloisters at Winchester College, or in the Pilgrims’ Hall, it is hard not to think about how much they have achieved and how I, and we as an institution, feel about them.

    To be a Pilgrim is to care, Edition 7

    As Dean Catherine said yesterday, there has been a national outpouring of grief and concern for the people of Ukraine following the invasion 16 days ago. It is the same at The Pilgrims’ School. We pray for peace. We pray for a ceasefire and talks. We want to help
