Overview

Sherborne is an independent boys boarding school that was founded in 1550 under a royal charter granted by Edward VI. For 460 years we have educated boys in the shadow of Sherborne Abbey and have grown into a modern school of 596 pupils and 96 teaching staff. Surrounded by the bustling market town of Sherborne and the rolling countryside of Dorset the School attracts pupils from all over the world. However, we are proud that 96% of current boys have come from UK prep schools. Shirburnians follow a diverse range of careers at the highest levels and include Actors, Poets, Diplomats, Bishops, Politicians, Journalists and Sports stars to name but a few.Sherborne offers an all-round education with a strong academic focus. We firmly believe that the best and most rewarding learning happens when boys are encouraged to be actively curious, flexible and open-minded, participating in, and shaping, their own learning. We also firmly believe that learning doesn't just happen in the classroom. Our pastoral care is itself an education, fostering the values of community, and actively seeking to develop the personal, emotional and social skills of each and every boy. And on the sports field, the stage, in the art schools, and in the community at large, Shirburnians are learning all the time as they strive to pursue excellence in all that they do. We want to equip boys to carry on learning for themselves long after they have left school.
