Headmaster's Welcome

Creating a culture of inclusivity

Our pupils, seizing the opportunity

Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to Sherborne Prep – where our pupils are encouraged to seize every opportunity before them. 

Nick Holland Headmaster

This is a school where children can be children, with plenty of time to explore and play. Through our care and nurture, they learn that education is fun, stimulating and exciting.  

I firmly believe that our happy, vibrant atmosphere brings out the best in every pupil, allowing them to achieve beyond their expectations. We are by no means a hothouse, believing instead that prep school should be a time in which children grow, build confidence and form lifelong interests. 

Although we are non-selective, we are proud of our academic reputation. We have a 100 per cent pass rate at Common Entrance and on average 40 per cent of our pupils go on to senior school with a scholarship or award.  We help every child make the most of their abilities and progress as a confident, independent young person with a tangible love of learning.

This really is a great environment in which to learn. You need only visit for a short time to notice the happiness and enthusiasm of the pupils in lessons, during co-curricular activities, and in their breaks. 

Please do come and see us. I would be delighted to take you for a tour of our beautiful School, and to find out more about your son or daughter.

Nick Folland, Headmaster
