The Curriculum

Our curriculum provides a broad education that exposes boys to a range of intellectual challenges in their early years at Sherborne, deepening their knowledge in individual subjects and establishing long-term learning habits.

Games & The Arts

The co-curricular programme operates alongside, and in conjunction with, our curriculum to ensure variety, breadth and depth to the boys’ development. Games and the Arts are an integral part of the boys’ lives and play an important role in their personal growth and development and the values they embody.

Pastoral Care

Active pastoral care is fundamental to our approach at Sherborne and our full boarding environment means all staff are immersed in the care of the boys and their lives in and out of the classroom.  By knowing the boys and building strong relationships through a 1:1 tutoring system, boys are advised, counselled and challenged within a genuine community.

University Places

Majority of boys go to Oxbridge and other Russell Group universities.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Academic and co-curricular success is undeniably important but we also want to inspire in our boys a lifelong desire to help others and to make a positive difference.  Boarding teaches boys how to get along with others, how to share, and how to develop friendships of exceptional and enduring strength.

Outstanding Characteristics

An all-boys, full boarding school providing a rich and varied seven day a week programme. High academic expectations and outstanding pastoral care sit alongside outstanding musical, artistic and sporting provision. Something that sets both Sherborne Girls and Sherborne School apart is the unique benefit of their close and active partnership.
