Warminster School

Warminster School has a deep-rooted connection with military families, dating back many years. Warminster is proud to have a longstanding relationship with the Armed Forces and are honoured to be a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant.

Warminster are proud to be a sought-after school with military families who seek continuity of education for their children despite what can be an itinerant lifestyle as they follow the flag. With in-depth knowledge of the military family and extensive experience of supporting through exceptional pastoral care, Warminster is the ideal choice for military families whether posted in the UK or overseas.  Add to this Quiet Weekends (no formal exeat weekends) generous forces package and sibling discounts, Warminster delivers on all fronts.

Warminster is a community spirited boarding and day school offering an exceptional all-round education, steeped in over 300 years of historical tradition and set in a stunning 60-acre campus in the heart of Wiltshire.

Warminster support the Continuity of Education Allowance Scheme from the Ministry of Defence with a very generous Forces’ Bursary. UK military parents only pay 10% of the boarding school fees, through the financial support received as part of the Continuity of Education Allowance. Warminster School covers the remaining amount with a Forces’ Bursary. In addition to paying 10% of the school fees, forces families only pay 50% of the deposit and pay the £125 registration fee.

“The pastoral care offered by Warminster is second to none. It is a community which embraces the child and family whether military or civilian.” Brig Jez Sharp

We offer both A-Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma at Sixth Form, as well as being one of few schools to offer the IB Career-related programme. Our pupils are encouraged to try new things and embrace set-backs and failures as the best way to achieve success. This is all done in a supportive and nurturing environment, where the sense of community is tangible and authentic.
