Sherborne School

Founded by King Edward VI in 1550, we are one of just a few full-boarding, all-boys schools in the UK and this, together with our strong partnership with Sherborne Girls, is what makes Sherborne School special. Sherborne is an ideal location, giving the opportunity for all to develop in a secure environment whilst encouraging each boy to become self-reliant, confident and kind. We offer a first-class academic education and aspire for our boys to be empowered to make an impact in the world.

Sherborne invites talented and enthusiastic boys entering our Third Form or Sixth Form to apply for various scholarships and exhibitions that we offer. These awards range from academic and creative to musical and sporting.

In return for demonstrating high levels of talent and commitment in their chosen discipline(s), award holders are given many opportunities to stretch themselves and develop their abilities through involvement in additional tutoring, coaching, lectures, societies and social activities.

Scholarships and other non means tested awards normally carry a maximum of 10% remission of the day or boarding fee (as applicable), excluding extras. This applies to single award holders and to those who are offered two awards where the maximum total remission will normally be 10%. In some cases, an honorary award may be made with no financial reward attached to it.
