Shrewsbury School


Shrewsbury School has a world-class reputation for all-round excellence.  Fully co-educational, with a seven-day boarding heartbeat and an integral day community, we deliver a dynamic education that develops the abilities and enthusiasms of each and every individual girl and boy.

School should be serious fun.  Learning and enjoyment go hand in hand: in the classroom, through a vibrant co-curricular programme and in the communal life of the School.  At Shrewsbury, we aim to provide the most diverse, challenging and supportive environment in which all our children can thrive and exceed their own expectations.  

A good education opens doors.  This means getting the best possible examination results and qualifications.  Academic excellence is achieved through a wide-ranging curriculum that uncovers and encourages a genuine love of learning, alongside inspirational teaching that challenges each pupil to strive for her or his personal best.  However, examination certificates are just one product of education.  Many skills, values and aptitudes do not come with a piece of paper, but they are nonetheless vital for happy and purposeful living.  A great education nurtures character; and it lasts a lifetime.
