Sherbourne Priors Education

Age 7-13

Sherbourne Priors School is a very intimate setting in an English Manor House where staff and students live, learn and play together. The 5 acres of grounds add to a fabulous extended classroom and playground especially in the summer months.

The Sherbourne Priors Education programme for children aged 7 to 12 years has been designed specifically for this age group with tuition tailored to their cognitive ability, equipping them with skills that form a foundation for their future academic and professional life. The safe and comfortable environment created by staff in OISE schools allows children to concentrate on the dynamic and stimulating tuition with no distractions.

Lessons focus on the four key skills

  • Speaking
  • Listening
  • Reading
  • Writing


The welcoming and friendly environment ensures that staff and students quickly become part of the Sherbourne Family. Staff and students are residential which means staff embrace many different roles; in the classroom, in the playground, in the dining room, on excursions. A daily routine is established during the week with lessons and workshops encouraging fluency in English through games and activities, this includes sport and team games as well as arts and crafts. 

Sherbourne Priors is an all year round school where courses run for a week at a time. However students are encouraged to come for a minimum of two weeks at a time as their English progress is very rapid once immersed in English over this time.Students staying longer than one week have a full-day excursion on Saturdays.
