Sherborne Prep is in the enviable position of being an independent, stand-alone prep school but with all the benefit of superb links to the Sherborne senior schools, Sherborne School and Sherborne Girls' School. Each year approximately 50% of our pupils go on to the two senior schools, Sherborne School and Sherborne Girls School, but other children go on to a wide range of senior schools, which in the past year have included: Blundell's, Bryanston, Canford, Cheltenham Ladies College, Clayesmore, Downside, King's Bruton, King's College Taunton, Leweston, Marlborough, Millfield, Milton Abbey, Monkton Combe, St Mary’s Calne and Winchester.
We are proud of our 100% success rate at Common Entrance and of the fact that, despite being a non-selective school, on average almost 40% of pupils go on to their chosen senior school with a scholarship or award. We have an excellent scholarship record; on average, 40% of our Year 8 year-group will gain a scholarship award in one discipline or another, to a variety of fine senior schools. 2020 has been no exception with 22 Scholarships, Exhibitions and Awards out of 39 pupils - we are extremely thrilled for them.
