Salisbury Cathedral School is situated in one of the most beautiful locations in the UK, with extensive grounds of over 27 acres within the historic Cathedral Close.

Recently merged with Leaden Hall, the school now spans two iconic and beautiful sites within the Close. The Junior Department is based on the Leaden Hall Campus with its idyllic riverside setting and state-of-the-art wooden classrooms and the Prep Department on the 20 acre Palace campus site, complete with its own lake, extensive playing fields and lessons in the thirteenth century Bishop's Palace.

Warm', 'caring', 'happy' - these are the three most popular words used by parents to describe Salisbury Cathedral School and our unique setting, adjacent to one of England's finest cathedrals, helps to cultivate a strong spiritual awareness and Christian values underpin everything that we do.

We believe a child's self-esteem is vital to their success. At SCS, we foster an unpressured environment where pupils are encouraged and congratulated every step of the way, celebrating their achievements and promoting a strong sense of self-worth. Our focus on the individual child means that all staff play a role in discovering strengths and areas that need guidance and support.

This approach works. Our academic results are impressive and consistently out-perform competing schools but, more than this, the children who leave us are confident, self-assured, well-rounded and comfortable in their own skins.

Music is at the heart of SCS and is undoubtedly one of our major strengths. The school educates the boy and girl choristers of Salisbury Cathedral and their expertise and skills enrich the lives of all members of our community. All children are encouraged to play an instrument and the wide range of ensembles, both choral and instrumental, is outstanding.

However, we offer so much more. Whether it is performing ambitious drama productions, winning regional science competitions and national sporting accolades, writing inspiring poetry or creating beautiful metal-work, pottery and art, we feel we have something to bring out every child's talents.

The best way to appreciate what we can offer your child is to visit us on a normal school day. We would be delighted to show you around. Please contact Jane King on 01722 439260 or e-mail admissions@salisburycathedralschool.com or visit our website at www.salisburycathedralschool.com
