INTERNATIONAL PUPILS AT SHERBORNE PREP SCHOOL
We welcome applications from all over the world, celebrating a diverse community of mutual learning and growth and ensuring appropriate balance in our pupil population.
Contact Victoria, our Registrar, for further information: [email protected]
Our boarding community is made up of Full, Weekly and Flexi Boarders. We have a number of Full Boarders and they are kept busy at weekends with a mixture of activities. After Saturday Morning activities, pupils have the opportunity to play in sports matches on Saturday afternoons or take a trip into Sherborne town. We often hold movie nights or social events, and Sunday mornings are a chance for a well-deserved lie-in prior to an activity or outing. Sunday evenings are quiet, with an early night so that pupils have plenty of energy for the week ahead.
Our Matron is the boarding travel coordinator and will contact parents by email prior to each exeat, half term and end of term to confirm arrangements for travel.
The train station in Sherborne is just a short walk from Sherborne Prep and has a direct train to London Waterloo. It is approximately two hours and twenty minutes to London by road or rail.
We would ask you to register your formal interest by completing a Registration Form and paying our Registration Fee. We would also request a recent school report or reference.
If English is not a child's first language, we will arrange for an online meeting with a senior member of our academic staff to find out more about your child and their levels of English.
Following this online meeting we may request that a hand-written English assessment be taken alongside an online CAT 4 cognitive test.
If possible, your child will be invited to join us for a Taster Day/Boarding Taster. A Taster Day is an ideal opportunity to experience the school, lessons and co-curricular activities for themselves, and allow them to start feeling more comfortable in our surroundings
Offer and Acceptance of a Place
If your application to the School is successful, an Offer Letter is sent to you with an Acceptance Form.
Places are confirmed once a completed Acceptance Form has been received and, for children in Year 3 and above, payment of the deposits as detailed in the Offer Letter has been made.
Child Student Visas
If a child does not hold a British or Irish passport, they may require a Child Student visa to study in the UK. For further information on Child Student Visas, please refer to the full guidance on www.gov.uk
