A 10% sibling discount is offered when you have three children at Sherborne Schools (comprising of Sherborne Prep, Sherborne School, and Sherborne Girls).  

A sibling discount also applies where families have a third child at Sherborne School, but this only applies for the duration the children are at Sherborne Prep School. If the third child, then joins Sherborne School or Sherborne Girls, he or she will have the sibling discount and not the oldest child who had previously received it. The fourth and subsequent children will receive a 15% discount.
