Sarum Academy has been Salisbury Festival’s partner secondary school since 2015. Sarum Academy, located on Bemerton Heath, is the only school in Salisbury that is fully comprehensive, co-educational and has a sixth form. Our partnership with the Academy enables pupils to engage in a range of Festival events and special projects each year.
In 2016 we arranged for world-famous author Witi Ihimaera to visit Sarum Academy to speak to Year 8 pupils and to deliver a series of creative writing workshops.
Pupils from Year 10 and Year 12 took part in our long-standing Young Reviewers programme. We gave them a workshop with a journalist, free tickets to Festival events and an opportunity to have their reviews published on our Festival blog.
