Winchester College - Spectator Guidance, May 2021

We are once again delighted to welcome parents to outdoor pitches on campus to watch your son(s) play in home sporting fixtures. All fixtures will be played in line with the most current guidelines from the Government & relevant sport National Governing Bodies, and we ask families to adhere to the Government’s current guidelines.

We ask everyone to adhere to the following provisions to ensure we hold our matches safely and can continue to host spectators:

  • On arrival please scan the NHS ‘Test and Trace’ bar code which can be found close to all entrances;
  • Please maintain a distance of one metre ‘plus’ from anyone who is not part of your household. Parents are asked to socially distance around the perimeters of the pitches and not congregate in large groups.
  • Spectators are not permitted in any buildings and toilet facilities for parents on site are extremely limited as Covid regulations require us to provide separate facilities for all visiting teams and staff which stretches our resources. With that in mind the toilet between Hunter Tent and the access gate is currently the only definitive toilet facility that will be available for parents / spectators.

We are only able to offer limited hospitality for spectators at this time in the form of a takeaway tea and cake. You are of course very welcome to bring your own refreshments.

Parking is a challenge around the school campus, even more so while we are in the midst of building our new sports centre. There is limited availability outside our temporary sports centre (postcode SO23 9PG), some availability for on-street parking for 2-4 hours, and a park and ride 10-15 minutes walk away (postcode SO23 9PH)

Please do not visit our sports grounds if any of the following applies to you:

  • If you have tested positive for COVID 19 within the last 10 days;
  • If you have symptoms of a high temperature and / or a new persistent cough and/or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia) and are self-isolating for 10 days;
  • If a member of your household has symptoms of a high temperature and / or new persistent cough or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia) and you are self-isolating for 10 days.
