Salisbury Cathedral School Announces New Scholarships

Salisbury Cathedral School is introducing a brand new set of scholarships for children entering the school in September 2019.  They will be awarded on the basis of excellence in various disciplines across different areas of school life – academic, music and sport. 

Children will hold the awards for the duration of their time at the school on the expectation that they continue to develop and make progress at the rate expected of a scholar by the relevant department.  Each scholarship will also have its own individual requirements which can be requested by contacting the admissions department.

The School enjoys a unique setting within Salisbury Cathedral’s ancient walls and is lucky to have the beautiful 800 year old Bishop’s Palace to use as its 21st century classrooms. The focus is on the pastoral care and guidance for all the boys and girls aged 3-13; it is a place where personality grows.

The new scholars will be expected  to set the highest standards within their disciplines and in return the school will ensure they are supported and become immersed in Salisbury Cathedral School life.

SCS Pupils transfer, mainly at 13, to a diverse range of senior schools. Last academic year, 14 pupils in a cohort of 18 achieved Academic, All-Rounder, Music, Drama, DT and Sport scholarships to leading public schools, with 3 obtaining a Specialist Music Award at Wells Cathedral School, one of the leading music schools in the country.

For further information on the scholarships please contact The Registrar, Philippa Ennew on 01722 555300 or email her at
