Warminster School

Steeped in over 300 years of historical tradition and set in a stunning 60-acre campus in the heart of the south west of  England, we are truly a community spirited boarding and day school offering an exceptional all-round education.

"Our pupils benefit from a broad and rounded education in a caring and tight-knit community.”

We offer both A-Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma at Sixth Form, as well as being one of few schools to offer the IB Career-related programme. Our pupils are encouraged to try new things and embrace set-backs and failures as the best way to achieve success. This is all done in a supportive and nurturing environment, where the sense of community is tangible and authentic.

We offer a wide range of co-curricular opportunities and experiences, and foster a culture of enthusiasm, optimism and ‘getting stuck in’. We prepare our pupils for life beyond school - at university and in the world of work. Most of all, though, we are a community, in which each boy and girl is valued and nurtured on the basis of who they are, whatever their age, natural gifts or background.

Strong individual academic achievement is the central pillar of a Warminster education and this will always be the case. However, we firmly believe that what happens outside the classroom is just as important as what happens inside it. We seek to challenge and inspire our pupils through an extensive extracurricular programme including a thriving sport programme, CCF and outdoor pursuits, as well as a formidable arts offer.
There is no ‘typical’ Warminster pupil and nor should there be. As a community we are happy if our pupils get stuck in, give things a go and always push themselves to achieve their potential. In doing this we find they develop a sense of direction, happy memories and long-lasting friendships.

“The pastoral care offered by Warminster is second to none. It is a community which embraces the child and family whether military or civilian and this is why we wholeheartedly believe we made the right choice for our son.”
Brig Jez Sharp


We are proud to be a sought after school with military families who seek continuity of education for their children despite what can be an itinerant lifestyle as theyWe recognise military life can cause stress and upheaval leading to a fragmented education however, we are perfectly equipped to mitigate this. With our in-depth knowledge of the military family and extensive experience of supporting through our exceptional pastoral care, Warminster is the ideal choice for military families whether posted in the UK or overseas. Add to this our generous forces and sibling discounts, Warminster delivers on all fronts.
