Ethos and Aims


At Sherborne House, the children are the focus of all we do.  We want them to enjoy, value and grow from all their experiences with us, and to leave school with a life-long love of learning, and the confidence and resilience to achieve their goals and dreams.



Sherborne House aims to provide a stimulating and exciting education with wide-ranging opportunities to investigate, explore and grow intellectually, morally, spiritually, socially and physically.  This is achieved through the following specific aims:



  • To offer the opportunity for each child to become an independent and motivated learner
  • To enable each child to understand and judge their work, so that positive evaluation will encourage the will to succeed and the desire to improve
  • To promote high standards in all areas of school life



  • To deliver a balanced and wide-ranging curriculum, differentiated to meet varying needs, interests and abilities
  • To inspire creativity and imagination
  • To offer relevant opportunities which will encourage belief in the value and relevance of school life


Attitudes/Values/Personal Development

  • To develop positive and supportive relationships with peers and adults
  • To promote a caring and tolerant environment, in which individual differences are respected and equal opportunities are the right of all
  • To nurture enthusiasm for, and an enjoyment of, school life


Partnership with Parents

  • To create an environment in which all parents are encouraged to be involved in the life of Sherborne House
  • To work in partnership with parents to ensure the best possible home/school support for each child
