Warminster School

We are a co-educational boarding and day school for pupils aged 3 to 18 in the South West of England. Life at Warminster is a busy one, filled with academic and co-curricular activity, discovery and adventure.

Warminster School is located in the town of Warminster in Wiltshire – a peaceful and attractive rural setting, on the edge of Salisbury Plain. With good road and rail links we are a little under two hours from London by train and within easy reach of Bath, Bristol and Salisbury.

We believe that it is our sense of community, mutual support and a happy atmosphere that set us apart. Almost everyone who visits comments on it; it is a vital feature of the School and one that we cherish. It is genuine, authentic and impossible to contrive.

If you saw Warminster School in ITV's recent two-part documentary 'School Swap – the Class Divide', then you will have had an accurate snapshot of the School. We hope that what came across on television is what we pride ourselves on most – this sense of community and a culture of encouragement and participation in which it's ok to struggle or even fail sometimes. What matters is how one responds and bounces back. The programme also highlighted our very clear educational philosophy that what happens outside the classroom is every bit as important as what happens inside it.

Pastoral care is the most important aspect of any school: a child who is happy and feels secure, valued and supported can flourish and Warminster is committed to providing such an environment. Every child is part of a small tutor group and the role of the tutor is key: he or she acts as the champion of his or her tutees. Living and learning with each other requires good social skills and we also place strong emphasis on the importance of 'social learning': qualities such as tolerance, patience and resilience.

Warminster is a beautiful school, but schools are not, first and foremost, about buildings and facilities but about people and relationships. Being part of a community means that everyone has to contribute and play their part: giving as well as receiving.

However, many of these things are intangible and very difficult to capture on a website or in a prospectus. So please don't take our word for it – come and visit to see for yourself.

We are on stand 215 during the show and would be delighted to meet you.
