Sherborne International

Sherborne is a specialist intensive school for overseas girls and boys aged 11-17. Students from non-British backgrounds are given the best linguistic and academic preparation possible. Classes have a maximum of 8 students. There are 160 students in the School. All teachers are double trained – to teach English AND their own subjects, such as Mathematics, Biology, Physics, Chemistry,  Geography, History, Art and Business Studies. This is to help ensure all lessons are fully understood and that language or other cultural differences are not barriers to learning. 

"The best starting point for overseas students wishing to join the UK independent school system.”

The School occupies clean, modern buildings, with excellent facilities, including a library, 8 science laboratories, an art studio, two ICT centres, 17 classrooms and a state of the art multi-purpose hall. The boarding accommodation for students is mainly in modern single or double rooms with washbasins.


Students usually stay at the School for a year and are then ready to move into a traditional British boarding school. 


The School achieves excellent IELTS, and GCSE/IGCSE results on its year round programme and offers quality academic Spring Vacation and Summer programmes.
