On 1 July 2024, the two charitable trusts that own Sherborne School and Sherborne Girls (and their associated schools) formally merged into one charity called the Sherborne Schools Group, a unique and exciting educational offering in the UK for girls and boys aged 3 to 19. 

The merged Group includes Sherborne Schools Worldwide, a joint venture set up by Sherborne School and Sherborne Girls in 2017 to establish Sherborne-branded schools around the world.  

Partnership with Sherborne Girls 

For many years, Sherborne School and Sherborne Girls have benefitted from a close relationship, underpinned by shared values, a Christian foundation and a commitment to full boarding. The schools’ unique collaboration is distinctive and offers pupils all the advantages of a single-sex senior school education alongside many of the benefits of co-education. The schools are ‘separate, yet together’. Many families choose to send their sons to Sherborne School and daughters to Sherborne Girls, recognising the logistical advantages of the schools’ close partnership, as well as the educational benefits of the joint offering.
