The Wykeham Patrons group was launched in June 2009 and since then has evolved into a body of generous supporters of the school.

Members of the Wykeham Patrons group contribute significantly to everything that Winchester values. The Patrons help:

  • to afford the widest possible access to boys regardless of background, so that they can benefit fully from the school's outstanding education

  • to maintain and improve the school's unique listed buildings

  • to retain the Quiristers, who have served the school since its foundation in 1382.

Patrons enjoy these special privileges:

  • they receive invitations to special cultural and other events, both in the UK and further afield

  • the private use, by arrangement, of venues at Winchester College

  • direct personal contact with those who are shaping the school's future

  • invitations to events with the Warden, Sir Richard Stagg KCMG (G, 1969-73) who is the Senior Patron.

To become a Wykeham Patron, a pledge to donate a minimum of £5,000 per annum over a five-year period is expected.
