Sherborne Girls is an independent full boarding and day school founded in 1899.  There are 445 girls aged 11 to 18 of whom 410 are boarders. It is situated on a beautiful campus on the western edge of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and has an excellent academic record combined with first-rate facilities.  It aims to give its pupils a broad and balanced academic, physical, social and moral education. The school has an Anglican foundation. Academic results are excellent at GCSE, A Level and in the International Baccalaureate, with most girls moving on to Oxbridge or Russell Group universities.

There are very good relations with neighbouring schools:  drama, music, social and academic life are greatly enhanced by shared activities and resources.  At Sixth Form level, Sherborne Girls and Sherborne School operate a combined timetable, so that girls and boys have the opportunity to study subjects not available at their own schools.  Both Advanced Level and International Baccalaureate courses are available for our Sixth Form of over 170 girls.

The boarders live in seven purpose-built houses: one for Years 7 and 8, five mixed-aged houses for Years 9 to 12, and an Upper Sixth House. Each house has a pastoral team comprised of a teaching Housemistress or Housemaster, resident and non-resident tutors and matrons. Girls eat in their houses and the Personal Tutor system is house-based.

We are proud of our academic achievements and strive to give all our students the best opportunities for them to develop their unique potential. The curriculum is enriched by appropriate use of technology, an extensive co-curricular programme, a range of study days and external trips. However, our aims are broader than just to achieve excellent examination results, and although our pupils make progress significantly above expectation, we also want them to develop independence other life-skills, talents and interests and respect for one another.
