Student welfare, we take care of your child
Welfare and Safety
The safety of your child and the quality of our programme are paramount. That’s why we have a staff to student ratio of 1:3 – probably one of the highest staff ratios of all English language summer schools. We also operate a 24 hour emergency number and students are never allowed off campus unsupervised. Our experienced welfare team is always on hand and are based in our comfortable, well-equipped medical centre.
Safe location: the prestigious Sherborne Girls school is located in the charming town of Sherborne in Dorset. Sherborne is a safe, picturesque location of historical interest in one of England’s most beautiful counties.

Accommodation is provided on-site at the school. Boys and girls are in separate accommodation in their age groups. Accommodation types are subject to availability and include: single, double, triple rooms and quad rooms as well as single cubicles.
Each boarding house has comfortable lounges for socialising and relaxation. All our managers live on-site and our activities staff are accommodated in the same boarding houses to ensure supervision. Each boarding house has a dedicated House Parent who is responsible for the welfare of their students in conjunction with our Welfare Team.
We provide a variety of British and international dishes. Meals are cooked on-site and there is always plenty of choice including vegetarian options. We can also cater for other special dietary requirements. As well as breakfast, lunch and dinner, we provide an evening snack at the end of the activity programme.

We organise transfers to and from airports and other destinations for our students. Our trained staff will meet your child at the airport and then help them check-in and see them safely through passport control on departure. They will always wait if a flight is delayed. We recommend arriving at London Heathrow or Bristol airports but can arrange transfers from other UK airports / locations on request. For more information about the cost of our transfer service, please contact us.
