Choosing a school for your child at the moment is harder than ever. At Sherfield they are aiming to make this process as easy for you as possible…
They are offering open events and private tours for you and your family to come and see the school in action and meet their staff as well as online and phone meetings.
Based in Hook, Hampshire, they offer a whole education for boys and girls from all over the world, whether they be 3 months or 18 years. Having a diverse demographic of pupils is a fantastic opportunity for collaboration through peer-to-peer learning and is one of the reasons why their pupils enter into adulthood well-rounded and prepared.
The school has an inclusive family feel to it and most parents will tell you how much their children have grown in confidence and progressed because of this.
They have an extraordinary enrichment programme which promotes 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.
“We have two children in the school with very different academic abilities and have been pleased with how the school has approached both their learning requirements.
The enrichment program has been very well received and our children look forward to Friday afternoons when they can go ‘off curriculum’, learning a new skill, developing friendships and gaining a wider sense of the world around them – it really is a great addition to the week.” Year 6 and Year 8 Parent
In their Reception Class they are able to offer three times more qualified teacher time, than most state schools, which enables them to teach two adult led Maths and Literacy sessions per week compared to the bi-weekly adult led sessions in these schools.
They have specialist teachers in Art, DT, Languages, PE, Swimming, Music, Dance, Drama and Forest School in their Junior Prep.
They also have 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.
“The level of support given by my teachers has been fantastic especially as I know that others at different schools and colleges have not been so lucky.” Year 12 Student
