What the school says...
Sherborne School, founded in 1550, is one of the leading independent schools in the country. Built around Sherborne Abbey in a beautiful, bustling, small market town, surrounded by the rolling Dorset scenery, it is a truly unique location. The benefits and advantages of the peaceful setting are enhanced by the ease of transport to London with a direct train from Waterloo to Sherborne.
All schools strive to provide the best education they can, which often comes down to academic success, a caring pastoral environment and a busy extra-curricular life. Sherborne offers all these, thriving on the balance between tradition and constant innovation and improvement.
Sherborne supports and challenges every boy to become a man of distinction and as an all-boys school, with neighbouring girls schools, we can use our lengthy experience of educating boys to shape our approach to their often different interests and learning styles, pastoral needs, and rates of development. ...Read more
