Why Move to Sherborne?
Not the most high-profile town that comes to mind when you think of Dorset’s list of outstanding locations, however it is one of the most beautiful.
Placed six miles from Yeovil, Sherborne is an attractive market town set on the River Yeo, on the northwest side of Dorset.
Packed with listed buildings almost the whole town is a conservation zone, plus it’s home to a magnificent Abbey and two castles, reflections of its once historical importance.
Not only is Sherborne positioned in a very favourable location amid scenic rural areas of outstanding beauty, but it is also decidedly well connected and benefits from being on the direct rail line to London.
Many of the town’s buildings have been constructed using the unique local light yellow coloured Hamstone, a Jurassic limestone giving it a particular appeal.
Hollywood’s 2015 adaptation of Hardy’s classic novel ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’ was partly filmed in the town, making good use of its medieval architecture.
This Dorset gem has a reputation for art and antiques with many galleries and shops selling ornaments, furniture and other unusual items from bygone days, a veritable treasure trove for collectors.
Sherborne is a busy business and market centre for a wide area where residents enjoy a dynamic High Street side by side with specialist businesses and has a delightful shopping centre with a large choice of handcrafted goods and elegant fashions.
Several small parks and play areas dot the town and there are many public footpaths through the surrounding countryside making the town a popular stop off for lunch with summer hikers
The population swells with the coming of several annual events. The Abbey Festival, and the Pack Monday Fair attract hundreds of visitors.
With its beautiful historic buildings, riverside walks, first class schooling and stunning surrounding countryside Sherborne has become a very sought-after town to live in.
Sherborne Schools & Education
There has been a school in Sherborne since the time of King Alfred, who was educated there. The school was re-founded in 1550 as King Edward’s grammar school, using some of the old abbey buildings. Today it is a private school known simply as Sherborne School.
There are 6 private schools in the area delivering education to children from aged 3 years to 18 years.
Two state primaries serve the town Sherborne Abbey Primary School and Sherborne Primary School. Ofsted has rated both as being “good”.
Most of Sherbourne’s older students filter into The Gryphon School. Last inspected by Ofsted in 2017 the subsequent assessment report stated that the school “has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection”
Yeovil is the closest town offering further education. Yeovil College, with land-based studies available through a Yeovil centre of Bridgwater College, and some provision through private providers offers students a good selection of courses leading onto higher education.
