The Sixth Form Centre is the pastoral base for all the Sixth Form girls but is also staffed and equipped in order that you have access to academic staff and resources to support your studies.
The Centre comprises two houses (Jerred House and School House) set in beautiful gardens. The four full-time Centre Staff are all residents with their families in the Centre. The mix of single and married house staff with children and pets creates a family atmosphere.
The Centre runs on trust with very few official rules which encourages the girls to think carefully about how they act as individuals and how they treat others. With support and monitoring by the resident boarding team students decide how to organise their study, social and sleep time. The rich and varied activities programme encourages all students to try new things and look outwards – helping to create the world citizens of the future.
The Sixth Form houses are set in beautiful gardens with single and double study bedrooms, TV rooms, fully equipped kitchens, games area and relaxation rooms. The Centre is well resourced for both academic and social activities and the accommodation is of a high standard, making the Centre a lovely place in which to live. Boarders have single or double occupancy rooms and each Sarum has an individual study area. School provides the setting for many sporting and art-based activities, but the City of Salisbury is only a five minute walk away and you can enjoy the variety of facilities on offer there.
The house staff are supported by a team of four House Tutors and both the Head of Sixth Form and Careers Adviser are based in the Centre. The academic Sixth Form tutors are on duty in the Centre from four until 6pm every weekday. There is an extensive range of Higher Education resources and a careers office and careers library in Jerred House.
