Life in Wallace House

Nestled at the end of Cheap Street, near to the main School but with easy access to the town, Wallace House has a character all of its own.

Beautiful gardens provide a wonderful space in which boys can play and relax, giving the house a homely and calm atmosphere.

Wallace House was extended in 2005, making it comparable in size to Sherborne’s other boarding houses. It is a lively community, whose boys enjoy success in every aspect of School life. Moreover, thanks to extensively refurbished facilities, it offers great accommodation that is comfortable, roomy and very welcoming.
