Magdalen College School is a
remarkable place. We are now well into
our sixth century, and our former
pupils include scholars, war heroes,
musicians, Olympians, two Nobel Prize
laureates, a Hollywood film director,
and a saint. Our success in public
examinations, in securing places at top
universities, and in an astonishing
array of extra-curricular pursuits
ensures that we continue this proud
tradition. We do so by nurturing the individual potential of each of our pupils, and above all we believe that learning is as fun as it is fulfilling.
William of Waynflete founded Magdalen College School in 1480: schoolmaster, bishop of
Winchester and Lord Chancellor of England. Being of humble origins, Waynflete was
determined that others of ability should be given the opportunity to learn, to serve and to
prosper as he did. And so MCS offers a transformative education in our global university city, the community to which we contribute.
We attract and retain the best staff and MCS is a stimulating, welcoming and thriving
environment in which both to learn and to work.
