Admissions Process

Sherborne House is an independent day school which encourages the individual to explore the wonder and magic of learning by pursuing their own interests, cultivating their curiosity, developing tenacity and providing the confidence to own their own voice.

We have a progressive approach to child led learning, and believe in adapting our teaching to be responsive to the real world and its relevance to our children. We are agile in nature which imbues a sense of adaptability and preparedness for future challenges of academic rigour, career pathways and life’s journey.

Our aim is to engender confidence in exploration entwined with awe about learning – to sew a golden thread which interweaves throughout your child’s life enabling their enquiring mind, to go on to write their own extraordinary story.

We warmly welcome you visit us to experience first hand the feel of the school, to meet our Head, and have the opportunity to chat with staff, current pupils and talk through any questions, not matter how small, which we are happy to answer.

Arrange a visit

Contact our Admissions Registrar, Mrs Estelle Szasz on 023 80 252440 or email to arrange a visit.

Alternatively fill this enquiry form in and we will get back to you.

Have a tour

On the tour you will meet our Headteacher Cordelia Cripps, you’ll have the opportunity to meet staff, current pupils and be shown the school and its facilities.

Register with us

If you like what you see and would like to take the process forward, we would ask you to register your child with the Registration Pack we will provide at the end of your visit.

Taster Day

We will then arrange a Taster Day for your child to come in and experience a typical day at Sherborne House in the year group class they would be a part of. At the end of the day you will be invited to a chat with Cordelia Cripps and the Head of Upper or Lower School to report back on how the day went.


If both parties are in agreement, we will send you an offer letter with an Acceptance Form. The first term’s fees should be settled before attendance.

Start Date

Once the Acceptance Form has been completed, we regularly have starters the very next day!
