Every committed teacher agrees: if a young person shows an interest in something, it is worth doing everything possible to build on that interest and develop their learning. That way, it becomes an interest for life.

This is the philosophy behind our approach to clubs and societies at Sherborne. We offer boys the chance to participate in all sorts of activities, including debating, archive club, radio broadcasting, philosophical discussion, D&T and Art workshops, Drama, mathematical challenges, creative writing workshops, outdoor pursuits, and charity work and volunteering.

In every sphere, we encourage boys to identify their passions, and give them every opportunity to take flight. If a boy has an interest that is not yet fulfilled, we’ll help him find a way of pursuing it. And because we have a seven-day-a-week culture and a staff team that is absolutely committed to the flourishing of every single boy, there is both the time and the will to make good things happen.

The result is a lively, inquiring and busy community in which diversity is valued and everyone’s achievements celebrated.
