What makes Sherfield unique? 

Sherfield have an extraordinary, thriving enrichment programme. The school believes enrichment promotes employability, academic attainment and teaches pupils the skills they need to make good, informed choices.  A successful enrichment program can promote the life-skills needed for everyday life, develop “soft skills” that employers and universities look for, while also giving pupils the opportunity to find out more about their interests and passions.

Pupils are able to choose from a wide range of activities in consultation with their parents. There is something for everyone and most importantly, an opportunity for them to track their progress and maintain a permanent record of achievement.

There is also a huge amount of parent support with active parent liaisons in each year group, a fantastic parents association with plenty of all-year-round events, a parents’ café and parent’s social media groups.


For the popular weekly, full and flexi-boarding, Basingstoke station is only 10 minutes away which offers direct trains to London Waterloo every 15 minutes and a journey time of only 47 minutes.
