At Sherfield, pastoral and personal care and education are key at all levels.

"One of the strongest elements of school and extra praise should go to the pastoral team."

Year 10 Parent

We place great emphasis on empathy, motivation and social and cultural awareness and pupil well being is at the heart of Sherfield from our youngest to most senior students. Learning is tailored to your child’s talents and needs and supported within our smaller class sizes.

Our aim is to ensure each child achieves their full academic and personal potential in a nurturing environment as they progress through school. Teaching staff and tutors maintain close relationships with parents throughout each child’s entire time at Sherfield.

You are welcome to contact the school to discuss your child’s progress and well being at any time.

Sherfield School House system

Sherfield school pupils are members of one of four Houses: Buckfield, Loddon, Lydney and Wynstow and children mix with all age groups in their houses.

Each house has a monthly assembly. Housepoints are awarded for competitions in areas such as sport, art, music, maths, English and languages. Children learn to work together for team success, earning house points for a chance to win the House Cup at the end of the school year. Each house also raises funds for charity.
