Sherfield School welcomes applications from international students.

Sherfield is a UKVI Tier 4 Sponsor and can accommodate pupils of all nationalities.

We offer skype interviews and assessments if overseas students aren’t able to visit the UK to complete the admissions process in person. 

Sherfield School is located between two major motorways, the M4 and M3, with a travel times of less than one hour from Heathrow Airport or Gatwick Airports. The school is located near to mainline trains for easy access in to London. Our students enjoy a peaceful rural Hampshire setting with easy access for family visits.



Our Admissions team will send you a Registration Form which must be completed and returned, with

– The non-refundable Registration Fee (£150)

– Copies of recent reports from your child’s current school (translated)

– A photocopy of your child’s passport photograph and ‘Right of Abode in the UK’ pages


Taster Days

Students living overseas are invited to come to the UK for a taster including an overnight stay in our boarding house, if prospective boarders. If this is not possible, we provide a virtual tour of the school and organise a virtual meeting with the Headmaster.

For students where English is their second language, they undertake a Maths test and PASSWORD English test to gauge their levels in both subjects, under exam conditions, invigilated by their current school or where applicable, an Agent. This is followed by a virtual interview with the Headmaster. 

Meeting with the Headmaster is an important opportunity for the student to learn more about Sherfield and for the Headmaster to gain a sense of a prospective student's character and aspirations as well as their academic potential, interests and talents.

Successful applicants will be offered a place in writing. To complete your child’s enrolment, you will need to return the

Pupils whose parents live outside the UK must have a guardian permanently resident in the UK to act with their full authority. The guardian must be aged 25 or over and should live within easy travelling distance from School. We encourage guardians to play a full part in the life of our boarders.
