Sherborne School is full of musical potential with its state-of-the-art music school, a theatre, recital and concert halls and a wealth of rehearsal spaces.  In addition, we are fortunate to have the opportunity of presenting recitals and concerts in the beautiful Cheap Street Church

Students have the choice of being resident or non-resident.  Accommodation is available in single and twin-bedded rooms.  For those taking meals at the school, these are provided by an award-winning catering team who are pleased to assist those with specific dietary requirements.

Various social activities and a spacious bar complement a busy timetable at what is essentially a practical school where you immerse yourself in making music and socialising with other likeminded people.

Have a look at our previous Concertfest to view the thirty recitals and concerts given by both professionals and our students during the two weeks.


Sherborne Summer School of Music

Located at Sherborne School for Boys and set in the pretty medieval market town of Sherborne in Dorset, the Sherborne Summer School of Music (founded in 1952 as the Canford Summer School of Music) is the ideal venue for adult musicians of all ages and abilities to meet in a friendly, supportive atmosphere and enhance their skills through the help of our dedicated internationally celebrated teachers.
