The Curriculum

Through our wide-ranging and creative curriculum, we aim to give children opportunity to discover themselves and develop a life-long love of learning.

Games and the Arts

Music, arts and sport are about enjoyment, participation and progress. About 90% of our pupils play an instrument and 45% play two. We regularly win art and DT scholarships and receive our fair share of the laurels in sports.

Pastoral Care

High quality pastoral care is a priority at Salisbury Cathedral School and we take a multi-faceted approach. We proactively promote a continued sense of school community to bolster everyone’s mental health. Regular form times are an open environment for children to raise any practical or emotional issues they face. Year group and whole school assemblies address pastoral themes and often feature our school chaplain to lead thought and prayer.

Recent Scholarships

On average, 80% of our pupils achieve scholarships to their chosen senior schools each year.
