Admissions Process Explained

At Sherborne Prep, our valuing of individuality starts from the moment of your first enquiry: we get to know you and your daughter or son, understanding your needs and aspirations, and moulding our admissions process to suit.

As a result, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to admissions at Sherborne Prep. Some families go from enquiry to entry very quickly, while others make a number of visits over time before reaching a decision.

Throughout the process, we work at a pace that suits you and your child, building a relationship with you along the way. Our registrar and her team provide any information you require, as well as arranging visits and answering your questions, however big or small.

Then, once you are confident that Sherborne Prep is right for you, we make the application process as straightforward as possible.
