To help pupils understand their place in the world, we have a busy programme of community outreach and charitable activities. We have received formal recognition from the Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) ON BOARD initiative, which encourages and celebrates community action and engagement from independent schools.

Our activities include an ongoing link with local care homes, donating to the Sherborne food bank and supporting local charities including the nationally recognised Sherborne Viral Kindness project. Our pupils are enthusiastic fundraisers and frequently carry out activities independently as well as with the School, to contribute to charities they are passionate about.

As a result of this altruistic focus, our pupils come to understand themselves better, and are inspired to make a difference in the world. What’s more, they are better able to live by our School Motto: “Non nobis solum”, or, “Not for ourselves alone”.
