Sherborne Girls is an independent boarding school for girls located in Sherborne, South West England.. The school is approximately two hours from London. . In 2017, the Independent Schools Inspectorate rated the quality of pupils’ academic and other achievements, as well as the quality of their personal development to be excellent, the highest grading that can be awarded. The school site is not an old-fashioned castle but a more modern one. Moreover, the school enjoys close linkage with Sherborne School.

Sherborne Girls aims to be the leading full boarding girls’ school for all-round personal development and academic fulfilment, and to create a community of empowered learners who will be an influence for good in a challenging world. Their academic results fluctuate sometimes but the academic performance of the girls is outstanding overall. In 2019, 100% of IB students passed with average with 36 points or more; 74% of A-Level grades are A*-B and 62 of GCSE grades are 9-7. Many of their leavers continue to pursue knowledge in top universities including Oxbridge and Russell Group University. A variety of activities are on offer to give the girls a head-start in their decision-making process, including a university open day visit and a higher education day with personal statement workshop.
Boarding and Pastoral Care for students:
Sherborne Girls is organised around a traditional boarding house system of seven houses each accommodates between 45 and 80 girls. Each house is run by teaching house parents, supported by a house team comprising a day matron, resident tutor, and two non-resident tutors. Each house has a team of academic tutors, drawn from the teaching staff. The tutor will have to know the girl and encouraging her interests, monitoring her academic progress, advising on study skills, time management, career and higher education aspirations, and helping her in making choices. The health centre is staffed permanently during term-time by a team of qualified nurses and the school medical officer. If girls wish to see a female doctor, arrangements can be easily made with a local surgery
The school provides a wide range of high quality co-curricular activities. The school offers students elite-level opportunities and open participation on music, sport, drama and art, for those who don’t consider themselves experts but would like to join in. All younger girls are in sports teams and older girls have opportunities to spend timetabled games times participating in a whole host of engaging physical and fitness activities. They take full advantage of their close relations with Sherborne School to enable the girls to share activities and opportunities with the boys. They have a range of inspirational visiting lecturers and performers, and their academic staff bring their personal interests, skills, and hobbies to school, offering such creative and diverse societies and activities as astronomy, cryptic crossword solving and conservation. Adventure, leadership and volunteering opportunities abound: over half the girls who are old enough are involved in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
