Pastoral Care

With the challenges and pressures on young people increasing in modern life, good pastoral care is vital.  At Salisbury Cathedral School we recognise this and, as a result, our top priority is the welfare and happiness of pupils.  In recent years, we have embraced new and innovative approaches to ensure that our pastoral care continues to be second to none.

The cathedral clergy and most especially, the School Chaplain, are at the forefront of ensuring that help is at hand at all times for both pupils and staff.  Regular school assemblies and acts of worship in the school’s Chapel and in Salisbury Cathedral ensure a strong sense of community and mutual support is fostered and promoted.


We have introduced a visionary and pioneering tool called a ‘Motivational Map’ which is used to identify individual pupil needs and tailor interventions and learning accordingly. Pupils in the Prep school undertake this process to track and plot their progress. These maps can unlock individual potential and reveal previously hidden talents.

Form teachers provide day-to-day pastoral care and, in addition, all Prep school pupils have a ‘Vertical Tutor’ who monitors their all-round wellbeing and progress, like a critical friend.  Tutor groups meet weekly and are composed of children from different year groups.  This encourages pupils to support and help each other, as well as giving them a sense of belonging to their own SCS ‘family’ throughout their time at the school.
