Warminster School is a mixed, secondary comprehensive, Church of England ethos all-through school with nursery and sixth form situated on the edge of the ancient market town of Warminster, Wiltshire. It is an independent day or boarding school. A smaller than average size for a school of its type, the school will provide 715 places for nursery, primary, secondary and sixth form students between the ages of 3-19.

Warminster was founded in 1707. It first became the co-educational school we know today following an amalgamation with St Monica’s school in 1973, a school that used to stand on the site of the current prep school. It was also at this point Warminster School gained its current name.
