How to Find Us

The beautiful abbey town of Sherborne is located in Dorset, but borders Somerset and Wiltshire. The town is served by several leading private schools, including Sherborne Prep which is just a short walk from the town centre, conveniently situated between the boys' and the girls' senior schools. 

The nearest airports are Bristol, Exeter and Southampton. We are happy to arrange transfers from Heathrow or Gatwick if needed for pupils. We use a properly vetted and highly reliable Dorset taxi company who specialise in escorting unaccompanied minors to and from airports throughout the South West of England, for many of the Dorset independent schools. 

Sherborne town railway station has a mainline, direct train to London Waterloo. We are just 2 hours from London. 

Sherborne Prep is easily accessible by road (please see the map below for directions). Please enter the school site via the lower driveway as we have a one-way system in operation. You will find the Registrar's Office straight ahead of you at the top of the main car park. 

Local information on places to stay, things to do and senior schools can be found here.
