Accommodation and Fees


In the centre of the town of Sherborne, with its roots dating back to the 8th Century, the School was re-founded in 1550 by King Edward VI. The original buildings have been sympathetically restored and refurbished and provide a charming and peaceful ambience that is ideal for music-making.

Accommodation houses are within the precincts of the main school courtyard or in nearby locations. The main street of Sherborne,Cheap Street, flanks the east side of the courtyard, and tempts visitors to the small ale houses, antique shops, tea rooms and designer fashion houses.


On the south side of the School the magnificent and very beautiful Abbey stands majestically over the surrounding buildings.  The chief glory is its roof, the earliest great stone fan vault in existence. It also boasts the heaviest ring of eight bells in the world
