Welcome to the Salisbury Cathedral School Website
Welcome to our website. I hope that it will give you a good insight into this very special school. A website or prospectus can only give you a flavour, however. If you like what you see, please telephone to arrange a visit. I would be delighted to show you around and talk to you about what we can offer your child.
Situated in one of the most spectacular locations in England, Salisbury Cathedral School is a thriving independent day and boarding school for around 200 girls and boys aged from 3 to 13. With the former Bishop’s Palace at its heart and in 27 acres of beautiful grounds within the Cathedral Close, the school has a special relationship with the Cathedral and educates the choristers who make up its two world famous choirs.
The school seeks to maintain and build upon the traditions of academic achievement, musical excellence and spiritual enrichment, which have developed over its 900 year history. It aims to provide a rounded and fulfilling educational experience, through which confidence is gained and a love of learning is instilled.
Whilst the school is famous for its music, pupils do not have to be musical to thrive and excel here. High academic expectations and wide-ranging extra-curricular opportunities in music, sport, art and drama encourage pupils to develop skills and talents to a very high standard.
Above all, this is a wonderfully happy and friendly school. Please come and see for yourself, I would be very pleased to welcome you.
