Welcome to Shrewsbury

HeadmasterWhilst I am delighted to welcome you to Shrewsbury School's website, I hope you will not regard a trawl through our web pages as a substitute for a visit in person. 

Shrewsbury is a unique school in many ways.  We are committed to strong academic standards and we believe in a vision of holistic education, as demonstrated through an incredible range of different activities and societies.  We are passionate about boarding not just being for convenience, but in providing the best opportunity for young men and women to develop real confidence and belief in themselves.  We are fortunate to have one of the best locations of any school in the country, a most beautiful site on the edge of one of the most historic county towns in England.

We are delighted that in September 2014 we welcomed our first cohort of Third and Fourth Form girls, building on the outstanding success of the introduction of girls into our Sixth Form in 2008. We believe our traditional values and time-honoured reputation will be enhanced by this move to full co-education.  We are committed to providing an environment where young men and women can learn together on foundations of trust and mutual respect.  We are confident that the future will be a more equal one and we support that historical evolution.

Above all, in the words of the motto of our youth club, based in inner-city Liverpool, ‘People matter more than things’.  You will find at Shrewsbury a community which is aiming for the stars in every respect.  Come and visit our beautiful school and meet some of the people who make it such an inspirational place.
