Boarding

Travel

We are very happy to help coordinate the travel for boarders at weekends, exeats, half terms and ends of terms. We can help with tickets and passports and can arrange escorted transport to and from airports or railway stations.

TRANSPORT LINKS

Winchester railway station is within easy walking distance, with a taxi rank outside the station and several reliable taxi companies used regularly by the school. There are four direct trains each hour to London Waterloo. The journey time is less than one hour.

The Pilgrims' Express, our escorted return train travel to London Waterloo is a popular logistics solution for busy families at the start and end of each exeat and half term. It also gives boys a growing sense of independence while they are still under close supervision. We are very happy to help with other escorted journeys at other times if we can – please ask for more details.

Southampton and Bournemouth are the nearest airports, 15 minutes and 40 minutes away respectively by car. Heathrow is approximately one hour away by car and is also served by National Express coaches from Winchester. There is also a direct train from Winchester to Birmingham International Airport.

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.
