Who will it suit?
The 200 boarders – about half the senior school population – live in family-type houses with strong pastoral care and obvious familial warmth. There are slightly more boys than girls, most from well-off families, with learning in small class sizes at the Sixth Form level. Excellent sporting facilities, including cricket, tennis, volleyball, lacrosse. Close to the ancient city of Bath and weekend outings are regularly arranged.
Nearly all move on to top UK universities with strong applications to Oxford and Cambridge on an annual basis. Regular and careful mentoring of candidates also ensures alternative destinations, such as apprenticeships, if that is more appropriate. Strong emphasis given to achieving high academic grades to ensure entry into elite universities in UK or abroad.
School offers a G-mail account to all its pupils to ensure there are no gaps in the academic work or understanding of requirements. Strong and positive boarding experience will ensure that those with moderate English language skills quickly upgrade their abilities. School occupies beautiful traditional and modern buildings on both sides of the main road; facilities offer everything an ambitious pupil could want.
Warminster is one of only two schools in the ASIS Federation offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) with the option of taking A-levels if required. A strongly academic and traditional school with a 300 year history and close ties to the armed forces, caring for many sons and daughters of service personnel, plus “high-achievers” from families covering 26 nationalities. Headmaster formerly served in the military himself and is very modest about his extraordinary achievement of rowing across the Atlantic ocean – twice!
