The varied programme will have been inspirational, not only to those wishing to pursue a career in literature or the arts but will also, I trust, have encouraged all, wherever their career take them, to maintain engagement with literature and the arts which will result in a more complete, rounded and fulfilling life.”

Justin Douglas (h, 1989)

"I really enjoyed supporting & attending the Sherborne Sessions.  It is so important that pupils can learn about areas in which they may wish to build their future careers.  I was delighted that I could support a topic about which I feel passionate, namely, Documentaries.  The Sherborne Sessions gave me this chance: I thoroughly recommend getting involved."
