Head PhotoSherborne Girls is a friendly, vibrant and highly motivated community at the forefront of women's education. We are proud to be one of the top academic schools in the country; as well as achieving outstanding success in examinations, our girls also excel in a wide range of musical, creative and competitive activities. In addition, they enjoy an extensive variety of other interests outside the classroom.

Our aim is to provide a rich, all round education enabling girls to enjoy fulfilling and active lives, have open and enquiring minds and develop the character and courage to make a valuable contribution to a changing world.

Our close proximity to Sherborne School (full boarding boys' school) makes us unique and unlike our competition in significant ways that will benefit your child. In short we offer a very different kind of single-sex education.
