Welcome to Sherborne Prep – where our pupils are encouraged to seize every opportunity before them.

A very warm welcome to Sherborne Prep at what is an exciting time for the School and, of course, for the future of your children. We are a warm, welcoming and inspiring community of passionate educators committed to doing the very best for every child entrusted to our care.

Alongside academic success, we focus on providing a magical childhood experience and the positive development of character and values. Our Sherborne Prep Dragon Values are a perfect guide and springboard that enable our children to become kind, thoughtful, solution-focussed, courageous and intuitive young people well prepared to embrace their future - whatever that may be. Sherborne Prep has a well-deserved reputation for the nurture and care provided by a superb body of staff capable of the stimulation and inspiration that children need and deserve.

The recent merger with Sherborne School also provides exciting opportunities to expand still further the breadth of each child’s experience through academic enrichment, the arts, sport, co-curricular activities, innovation and collaboration. Children today are curious and creative. They seek authenticity and thrive upon connection and discovery.

Our commitment to our children and their families is burning bright and is the expression of a team who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of others. We at Sherborne Prep are primed to make children ready for their future and would relish the opportunity to share in your exciting journey through school and beyond.
