    Sherfield School

    Our school is bursting with excitement, energy, and enthusiasm – perfect for students who are ready to have some serious fun while learning! You’ll be swept away by the exciting opportunities that await you.

    At Sherfield School, we believe that learning should be engaging, exciting, and interactive. That’s why we offer a curriculum that’s full of surprises and fun activities designed to keep you on your toes. From science experiments to artistic creations, our teachers will inspire you to think outside the box and unleash your creative potential.

    But that’s not all – our school is also home to some of the coolest extracurricular activities around! Whether you want to join our championship-winning sports teams, showcase your talents in our music and drama departments, or explore your adventurous side through our outdoor education offerings, we’ve got something for everyone.

    From the moment your child enters our outstanding nursery, they will start to develop their social and learning skills within our warm and nurturing school environment.

    As they progress through the Prep and Senior schools, the children start to develop rigorous academic skills and enjoy world-class sports, arts and music programmes. With our small class sizes and bespoke learning, we regularly achieve outstanding results in academic league tables. Sixth Formers are exceptionally well-prepared by our dedicated staff for further education and gain entry into some of the best colleges and universities in the world. Regular fieldwork, sports exchanges and cultural trips round out their development and this integrated education instils a lifelong love of learning and culture.

    We immerse our pupils in school life from day one of their journey here. Sherfield School is always a hive of activity. Our gifted and talented student body includes many musicians, artists, world-class players in tennis and golf plus national and international equestrian, figure skating, cross-country and swimming stars. The school also plays host to many music and arts events throughout the school year.

    Alongside academic learning and sports, we tailor pastoral care to meet your child’s individual needs and aim to foster their unique talents and character, building confidence and respect.

    And with our Grade ll listed manor house set in many acres of beautiful grounds, woods and gardens, plus a new, purpose-built playground, there are plenty of opportunities for all ages to get outside in the fresh country air.
