Established for over 450 years, Shrewsbury combines tradition with innovation to provide a whole-person education that will inspire and empower each individual pupil to flourish in life.

We were delighted to be named Independent School of the Year 2020 and shortlisted for three awards in the Independent School of the Year 2022.

Shrewsbury invites you to experience what life is like at one of the country's leading co-educational independent schools for 13-18-year-olds, at one of our forthcoming Open Days, Bespoke Visits or take a tour online with our Shrewsbury 360 Virtual Tour.

Information for Third Form (Year 9) Parents

If your child joins us in Third Form, they will experience our Foundation Fortnight which provides an immersive and wide-ranging induction experience with an introduction to all aspects of Salopian life.

Foundation Fortnight is an important time for our new Third Formers to find their feet. At the end of a packed programme of inductions to sport, music and activities, we hope our pupils are left with a sense of excitement as they settle into life at Shrewsbury, knowing that an abundance of opportunity awaits. 

Find out more by watching the teaser video below from this year's Foundation Fortnight.


Shrewsbury 360 - Shrewsbury's Virtual Tour


Welcome to Shrewsbury 360, the virtual tour of Shrewsbury School, the Independent School of the Year 2020

We hope this gives you a sense of our beautiful 110 acre school site, famously described as having the “the most beautiful playing fields in the world” by Sir Neville Cardus.

The stunning overview image captures perfectly our enviable setting, perched above the banks of the River Severn, with views towards the historic town of Shrewsbury and illustrates our school buildings surrounding the grounds as a village does its green.
