Founded in 1707, Warminster School is one of the South West’s leading independent day and boarding schools for boys and girls aged 11–18. Warminster School comprises Warminster Prep School for pupils aged 3–11 (see page 210) and the Senior School for pupils aged 11–18. Warminster School places a strong emphasis on the holistic development and pastoral care of each child.
Academic and co-curricular opportunities
Whether in the Prep School or Sixth Form, life at Warminster is a busy one, filled with academic and co-curricular activity, discovery and adventure. Academic results are strong and the School has enjoyed great success in recent years. Virtually all pupils go on to study at leading universities. Our experienced teaching staff continually encourage academic aspiration and learning. We strongly believe that a passion pursued now will offer untold opportunities for the future.
There have been a number of exciting new developments in recent years: significant investment has given pupils access to first-class facilities, including a new multipurpose hall, science centre, improved sixth-form facilities, library and IT suite, a new design and technology (DT) centre, dining hall and Forest School. The boarding houses have a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, and the experienced resident house staff provide a warm and supportive environment.
Academic standards at Warminster School are high, but the admissions procedure looks at the whole person and we welcome pupils with a range of talents and ability. Academic, music, drama, art, sport and DT scholarships are available. A 10% discount is available for HM Forces families. There is a 5% Sibling Discount. Means-tested bursaries are also available.
“Academically and pastorally Warminster School has exceeded all of our expectations.” Major General and Mrs Eeles
