General & Administrative FAQ

If you have any general questions, our School office would be delighted to help and can be contacted on

How do I find out what is going on in school?

Our Headmaster’s weekly blog is a good place to start.  News and events are published on our calendar, sporting fixtures on SOCs and our social media channels showcase a great deal of what goes on at Sherborne Prep.

Can I take my child out of school?

Please email the School Office and we will ensure that the Headmaster and teachers are aware of any absence.

Something has come up and I need to pass a message to my child.

We know that our parents have busy lives, and their plans can change at short notice.  Please call and we will ensure we can help whether it is ensuring your child gets on the bus, is picked up by a friend or relative, or that you will be a little late.  We are here to help.

My child left something at home.

A regular occurrence – we are a busy school with lots of kit and equipment and equally busy parents.  Just call and drop it off, and we will ensure your child gets it.

How do I book enrichment, tea and flexi-boarding?

Just call the School Office and they can help.

I would like an appointment to meet with the Head.

Of course.  Just call the Head’s PA and she will coordinate an appointment.
