Logistics for the fair:

Each exhibitor will have a table measuring a minimum of W120cm x D60cm x H76cm (some tables are wider). We can also provide chairs, and student ambassadors will be available to help you set up and assist you. Please bring your own stands etc to set up. Most tables will have access (but not necessarily adjacent) to at least one powerpoint. Please bring your own extension cords if required.

Technological requirements:

Wifi will be available on the day. Should you have any unusual requirements, please contact our Assistant Principal Craig Chambers cchambers@salisbury6c.ac.uk


Please use our front forecourt to unload (which must then be left empty as it is the fire assembly point). Student ambassadors may be available to help with this from 2pm onwards. After unloading you will be directed through our security gate to the staff car park. Our parking is extremely limited. Please park as close to the bottom of the car park as you can and don’t block in any cars near the top (some of these will need to leave at 4pm or earlier). Please inform us of your ETA if not 2pm.

Finding us:

66 to 78 Tollgate Road, Salisbury SP1 2JJ.

We are located on Tollgate Road, which you will turn left into from Southampton Road (A36) just after Wiltshire College. You will then find us on the left of Tollgate Road, opposite Molly’s Den. The entrance to our forecourt is on the right of the building.










Promotional items:

We know that students love freebies! We will be handing out bags to each student on their arrival with any items that can be provided. Please ensure that we receive these by Friday 8th Feb as we will be preparing them ahead of time. You will not necessarily meet all students as groups that have attended all day may leave at the start of the fair. We do not want schools complaining and must make sure the bags are identical. We also don’t want additional mess left by the students. You may of course provide prospectuses and any other literature at your tables. We are still welcoming donations to the event bags which will carry your logo along with other donors. Please fill in the form:
