What the Cathedral School offers

When selecting a primary school, parents are looking for teachers who care, give of their best, go the extra mile and are wholehearted in their commitment to their pupils. They are looking for high academic standards, the assurance that their child’s particular strengths and weaknesses will be recognised and understood, and that he/she will be supported and challenged so that significant progress is made at each new stage. And because education is much more than exams, at the Cathedral School, we recognise the major contribution made by music, sport, adventure and so many other activities to children’s development.

Our aim is to prepare children to enter the Senior Section with the basic foundations, positivity of mind and breadth of interests which set the right context for them to make rapid progress toward the challenges of A Levels and university entrance in due course.

What our pupils say...

Parents send their children to The Cathedral School in order to give them the life chances that are born of confidence

It has been really exciting moving into Year 3 and there are lots of new things to enjoy including drill night, going to the library at lunchtime and a trip to Stonehenge! Being a good friend is something we all try to do, in the classroom and in the playground. I completed the Digital Leaders’ course in Year 2, so I’m now able to share internet safety tips with  Years 3-6 to help them be safe online.
