We are waiting to hear from Winchester College as to whether my DS will be offered a place for 2018 entry (or not!). He interviewed in January, so it has been a long wait and apparently we were due to hear from them in May. Has anyone else heard anything yet?

We're you told at the interview when you would be informed of the outcome? We were (7 years ago) and the letter arrived on the day the HM said it would.
I think it came the first week after 1/2 term.
Good luck it's a great school.

We were just told May 😕

Ah you could call the admissions office and ask when your told, they always seemed very helpful when ever I spoke to them.

Hello, we got our letter last year and received it the second week of June (think it might have been the 11th). Don't worry that the envelope is small, it may still very well be an offer, as it was for us.
Good luck!

Hi did you find out what day it was? I had thought it was today, but obviously not as there is no letter in the post!

Our Head has followed up and was told that letters will be posted today, to be with us tomorrow or Wednesday. Good luck anxious!

Our envelope was very small as it was just a letter from the HM offering him a place. Official paper work arrived a later.

Thank you so much sixp - and good luck to you too!

We're waiting too; my son was only interviewed in early May (he's a summer birthday) and we left with the impression of early to mid-June for results. I tried to avoid thinking about specific timing too much ... [so why have I just found this thread via a search? hmm ]

We have our letter ... And it's good news! 🎉

Congratulations! Well done to your son.

Thank you notagiraffe. Are you waiting to hear too?

No, but I know some boys at Winchester (older now) who love it.

The HM that interviewed my son said they meet around 31 May to discuss the intake and letters arrive within the first 10 days of June. We got our letter on Tuesday (good news) after only having to wait a few weeks as my son is young in the year so had a relatively late interview. Nerve wracking stuff as no other school came close for him (or us). Congrats to your son OP.

And, meant to say, got the letter from the HM today with the copy to sign and return. Happygardening, you've been a very useful read since we've been in this process!

YouOkHun - congratulations to your son. We received the HM's letter today too. Just need to send the first of many cheques now!

happygardening Thu 09-Jun-16 17:09:35

Congratulations to both of you.
YouOK glad I've been able to help.

sixp Thu 09-Jun-16 22:17:26

Happygardening, I have PM'd you. I hope that's ok 😀

Anyone else on the reserve list? Any ideas how many will be on it and whether there's a chance of getting in?
