The Department for Education has put in place a voluntary scheme for the inspection of British schools overseas, whereby schools are inspected against a common set of standards that British schools overseas can choose to adopt. The purpose of the inspection is to provide information to parents, teachers, senior managers and the school’s management on the overall effectiveness of the school, the standard of education it provides and its compatibility with independent schools in the United Kingdom. The senior and preparatory schools were inspected in May 2017.

Inspectors overall judgement stated that Sherborne School is a good school with some significant strengths. Overall teaching is at least good and often better. Pupils are well supported through effective pastoral care as well as the implementation of high quality welfare, health and safety policies and procedures. The leadership team ensures the school runs well on a day-to-day basis. Routines and procedures are followed and understood by all. Recent appointments to the senior leadership team are having a positive impact on moving the school forward. The support by the Board of Governors is effective and the school has made further improvement since the previous inspection.
