      Boarding house life

      Our houses are warm and welcoming and full of creature comforts. Our girls are able to concentrate on their academic studies while at the same time participating in our fabulous extra-curricular programme: from astrology to zumba, together with numerous sporting, music, drama and academic enrichment activities in between.

      As parents you might well ask yourself the question: why boarding? In a nutshell, boarding enables pupils to have enormous amounts of fun in every aspect of their schooling (girls laugh every day - whether during an enjoyable lesson, on the lacrosse or hockey pitch or simply relaxing in their dorms), and they can experience all this in an environment where new things are encouraged, where they have to make choices that matter and take responsibility for themselves. Through boarding they are given the tools to learn how to be more resilient and ready to face life after school and there is nowhere better than Sherborne Girls to do this. If in any doubt, please do come and visit us. The dedicated and highly-experienced house staff and the girls would be only too pleased to show off their school. They are excellent ambassadors but be warned - every girl will say her house is the BEST IN SCHOOL!
