Mr Nick Folland


Sherborne Prep aims to meet the needs of each child as an individual. They are supported by enthusiastic and committed staff but also by each other as a community and family. There is a real warmth and vitality about the School and visitors always comment on the happy children. Children are confident and enquiring and are happy to be learning about the world around them.
Sherborne Prep provides a wide range of opportunities on the academic, creative and sporting front whilst allowing children to be children.
Pupils are successful at reaching the Senior Schools of their choice and the School guides them in their choices.
The Head believes that education should convey a real sense of meaning and purpose and grow open and enquiring minds. Sherborne Prep values imagination, individualism and variety and wants its young people to fulfil their talents wherever they lie.
The Head believes that the School’s teachers are outstanding and have ambitious vision for pupils whom they inspire in their learning, promoting endeavour and interest.
