Notices to Parents

Salopian Week and Speech Day
Copies of the Salopian Week and Speech Day programme have been sent to all parents. It is also available to view on the website at We look forward to welcoming you to as many of the events as you are able to attend. Please send your ticket requests to Dawn Dunn as soon as possible. Please note the following amendments to the published programme:

  • On Tuesday 24th June, the Inter-House Athletics Tournament at the London Road Sports Ground will begin at 1pm rather than 2pm (to allow spectators a chance to return to a TV screen for the England World Cup match that evening). 
  • On Friday 27th June at 11am the cricket match v The Saracens will be the School 2nd XI only, and not the 1st XI.

Please also note that the Headmaster's Report to Parents and Prize Giving will start at 11.00am (as in the programme) and not at 11.15am as published in the Fasti.

Concerts at Shrewsbury School next week
If anyone is within reaching distance of the School at lunchtime on Monday 16th June or in the early evening of Wednesday 18th June, there are two wonderful concerts taking place.
