Sherborne & the Local Area

There is a reason why Sherborne is known as the “Oxbridge of the South”. It is a unique seat of learning, with two major senior schools (Sherborne School and Sherborne Girls'), an international school (Sherborne International) and, of course, Sherborne Prep. 

Few other towns offer such a comprehensive range of schooling options, all set within historic surroundings that are characterised by beauty, heritage and a vibrant spirit of community. 

Sherborne offers the benefits of a safe rural town along with easy access to and from Heathrow, Gatwick and Bristol airports, and a direct train service to London Waterloo. With stunning scenery on our doorstep, we have every opportunity to share the joy of the great outdoors with pupils, while giving them a rich cultural experience in a town with real soul. 

Our medieval buildings, including the Abbey that we use for services and concerts and two castles, bring a profound sense of history. The honeyed buildings of the high street house a range of independent shops and some chains: they provide the perfect setting for the town’s many festivals, including an annual music festival at the Abbey and the popular Sherborne Literary Festival. 

Sherborne really is a town unlike any other: the perfect place in which children can be inspired, stretched and stimulated through a first-class education that puts them at the very centre.
