New Boarding House at Sherborne

It’s an exciting time for Sherborne School as today we announce the addition of a ninth boarding House to our boarding provision. In response to very high levels of demand for places, Westcott House will provide places for 65 new boarders. The additional boarding places will enable […]

Evita

UK politics appears in a state of  turmoil at present but its current machinations pale in comparison with the Machiavellian manoeuvres in 1940’s and 50’s  Argentina as told in the Joint Schools’ production of Evita. The School kindly gave us carte blanche to invite local […]

City Carol Service

St Olave’s Hart Street is one of those City of London churches so admired by John Betjeman and it provides an atmospheric setting for our annual carol service. Whilst in no way deflecting from the traditional format of lessons and carols, our service was enhanced with anthems sung beautifully by the St Olave Choral Scholars […]

Media Lunch

Autumn gales on the eve of the 2018 Media Lunch threw the rail network into complete chaos. Would this result in our guests being unable to make it to the lunch? Not a bit of it!  Turnout was 100% and the party atmosphere was in full swing by the time Anne and I emerged from […]

Wallace House Dinner

40 years ago Elmdene, for so long a waiting house for third formers, was transformed into Sherborne’s ninth all-age boarding house. It was therefore very appropriate that so many of the entry from the early years of Wallace House were present at a dinner held at Dirty Bones in Kensington in November. […]

Pub Night for the Classes of 1993 and 2003

The best way of engaging OS in their thirties and forties who are leading frantically busy leads to much head-scratching in the OS Office. It was therefore a pleasure to see leavers from 1993 and 2003 for a drink after work in The Happenstance Bar in the City. As ever with year-group events, they were […]

Ian Gavin Brown (g 60)

Ian Gavin-Brown (Lyon House 1955-60) died on 14 January 2018.  Ian had a longstanding connection with the School, first as a boy and later as a parent.  He acted as chairman and trustee of Sherborne in the Community for many years, providing opportunities for young people who had not had the same fortunate start to […]

A Week of Reunions

The last week in September saw two reunions for OS who left the School at least 45 years apart.

On Saturday 22 September the combined Sherborne and Sherborne Girls leavers of 2013 met at the Black Dog, Vauxhall for their 5 Year Reunion.  Over 90 OS and SOGs came along, a record turnout and something for […]

Graduate Careers Events

This week, in conjunction with Sherborne Old Girls, we held graduate two careers events for young OS and SOGs. Herbert Smith Free   hills LLP hosted an evening for those looking to further their interest in the Law whilst Investec did likewise for those looking to pursue a career in the City and Financial sector.

Both events […]

Reception at the Royal Ocean Racing Club

August saw a new departure for the OSS, a drinks reception at the Royal Ocean Racing Club during Cowes Week, kindly hosted by parents Lisa and Stuart Childerley.

Around 30 parents, staff and OS of all ages from this year’s leavers to the class of 1956 enjoyed drinks and canapes in the lovely setting of the […]
