We understand the importance of selecting the right senior school for your son and as such firmly believe that providing individual or small group tours enables us to tailor visits to your son's individual needs and interests.  

Nothing can match the experience of coming to Sherborne. If you are not able to visit in person at this time, we hope that the information on our Virtual Admissions page will provide a window into life at the School. For all future Tour Morning dates, please see below. 

We will look forward to welcoming you in person in the near future. This can happen as early as you like, but you should definitely plan to visit by the time your son is in Year 5.


Tour Mornings

We offer small group visits to Sherborne each term. You are welcomed by the Headmaster, followed by a tour of a Boarding House with the Housemaster. You will be taken on a tour of our beautiful campus by one of our pupils, before enjoying a buffet lunch with the Headmaster and other senior staff, during which you can ask any questions about the School. Timings are approximately 10.00am to 1.00pm.

We also offer several virtual events, especially suited to those unable to come to Sherborne due to  distance.  There are a variety of presentations given by senior members of staff, including videos of the campus and our Boarding Houses.
