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 2 senior schools, Sherborne School and Sherborne Girls School, but other children go on to a wide range of senior schools, which in the past decade have included: Blundell's, Bryanston, Canford, Charterhouse, Cheltenham Ladies College, Clayesmore, Downside, Eton, Godolphin, King's Bruton, King's College Taunton, Kings Canterbury, Leweston, Marlborough, Milton Abbey, Monkton Combe, Queen's College Taunton, Radley, Rugby, Taunton 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 are very proud of our scholarship record and, on average, 35%- 40% of our Year 8 year group will gain a scholarship award in one discipline or another, to a variety of fine senior schools. 2018 was no exception with 19 scholarship awards out of year group of 33 pupils - we are very proud of them.
