UK Armed Forces

Salisbury Cathedral School is on the approved list of schools for families who receive the Forces' Boarding Schools Allowance - Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA). We recognize the particular pressures placed on Service personnel and their families due to the difficult nature of their work, the requirement for family mobility and the long periods of parental deployment.

Maintaining a stable educational platform for Service children is one of Salisbury Cathedral School’s goals, recognising that Service children invariably have a great deal of wider experience that can further enrich our school  community.

Salisbury Cathedral School offers an HM Armed Forces discount of 15% off the day and boarding fee to all serving military personnel. 

The School is fully committed to providing support to our Armed Forces families in the provision of the very best educational and pastoral care to Service children.

For more information about Forces boarding, please contact orange.j@salisburycathedralschool.com or telephone +44 (0) 1722 555300
