Founded by Sherborne School in 1977, Sherborne International School provides world-leading short course programmes, giving students an outstanding opportunity to transform their English language skills whilst introducing them to the UK education system and British Culture.
We offer a range of courses for international students with an academic focus on improving English and knowledge of subjects in a safe and enjoyable environment.
Our Summer School Courses are for international students aged 8-17. The courses are intensive and academic with an extensive choice of sports, social activities, and excursions, so students can make rapid progress with their English and chosen subjects, whilst having fun and making friends from around the world.
Students can come for 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 weeks and can choose between: Intensive English plus Subjects, Pre-IGCSE/GCSE, IGCSE/GCSE Mid-Course Booster and Pre-A Level/IB courses. All courses benefit from very small class sizes (6-8 students) and highly experienced teachers. Junior students receive 20.5 hours and seniors 22.5 hours of tuition per week.
Our staffing ratio is high, so students are well looked after. Girls and boys live in separate houses and most have a single or double bedroom, some with en-suite facilities. We aim to ensure students sharing a room speak different languages.
Sherborne International is in the beautiful, historic town of Sherborne, South West England (2 hours from London). It has impressive sporting and musical facilities, including a 25-metre swimming pool, fitness centre, tennis courts, dance studio, sports hall and sports fields.
