Welcome to Warminster School

We are a boarding and day school for girls and boys aged 2 to 18. Life at Warminster is a busy one, filled with academic and co-curricular activity, discovery and adventure.

Our aim is simple: to inspire a life-long love of learning in those around us. Every day we use our expertise, ingenuity and enthusiasm to do just that. All children enjoy and are good at something, and a school’s job is to help them find and nurture their talents. We believe that a passion pursued now will offer untold opportunities for the future.

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, Warminster School is truly a community spirited thriving boarding and day school offering an exceptional all-round education to pupils from 2-18. Warminster offers 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.

At Warminster, we want our pupils to give things a go, get stuck in and step out of their comfort zone to try new things; a Warminster education is not designed for spectators. That said, we look to build confidence and nurture individuals to achieve great things; a child lacking self-esteem will grow, develop and thrive with support from our community.
