Prep School Liaison 

We are committed to developing and strengthening our relationships with prep schools, both local to us in Dorset, and further afield. We are pleased to work closely with schools and their staff to ensure they have a thorough knowledge of our School and can best advise their pupils and parents about a Sherborne education.  

Heads and Senior School Co-ordinators from our feeder schools are regular visitors to Sherborne and we enjoy attending senior schools’ fairs to meet parents who are considering the next steps in their son's schooling.

Staff Expertise

Our teaching and support staff have a wealth of skills and experience that they are delighted to share, and we are pleased to offer a selection of events for prep school pupils and staff. This includes a range of activities at Sherborne, within individual schools, out in the community, and online including: 

  • STEAM challenges, demonstrations, and activities 
  • Specialist coaching, refereeing and fixtures 
  • Music workshops, masterclasses, performances, and concerts 
  • Art and DT workshops and masterclasses 
  • Preaching and speaker opportunities 
  • CPD seminars and workshops 
  • Departmental symposia 

Thanks to our close partnership with our sister school, Sherborne Girls, the initiatives we run are not limited to boys only and we are always open to co-ordinating tailored enrichment events or programmes for individual schools.  

Popular recent events have included Cracking the Code, a Printmaking Workshop for staff and pupils, a CPD Conference for Matrons and Prep Schools' Choral Day.  

We are very happy to work with prep schools to put together bespoke engagement events. If you would like to find out more about how we can work with your school, please contact Louise Smith, our Engagement Officer, by emailing [email protected]
