About Peter Symonds College

Peter Symonds College is a highly successful sixth form college located in Winchester. The college regularly figures among the nation's top five performing colleges. It is a college with high expectations of both students and staff. We work hard to ensure every student achieves all that he or she can. We also try hard to make the college a friendly and supportive place to study, with every student treated as an individual. Indeed, our unofficial motto has long been "we count in ones". The college is the only state sixth form college nationally to offer boarding places. While most students come from Winchester and its environs, some come from as far away as the Falkland Islands.
