How we work

Sherborne 360˚ not only reflects the excellent all-round education the boys receive but also reflects the range of projects we will be supporting between now and 2026.  They will include boarding, science, sport, technology and the arts, as well as bursary support to help widen access to our excellent school.  Sherborne 360˚  also features on the School buildings we have funded during the first 20 years, in recognition of our supporters’ generosity.  The special 20th anniversary project for 2019 was the complete refurbishment of the Macnaghten Library, which you can read more about here.

Sherborne 360˚  builds long-term relationships with donors, helping them integrate with the School and understand the impact of their generosity.  It represents the voice of Sherborne’s supporters within the School, helping to shape its future and contribute to its success. We work closely with the Old Shirburnian Society. Together, we organise regular events at School and further afield, helping people keep in touch with School friends and learn about the latest developments in Sherborne.
