Please note that the Drinks Reception before the New Entrants’ Concert on Saturday will take place in the room above the School Shop (known as ‘Top of the Shop’) from 5.30pm. The Shrewsbury School Parents’ Association (SSPA) Committee will be there to say hello and answer any questions.

'Raising Happy Teens' talk for all parents, Friday 21st September at 11.30am in the Alington Hall
Parents should have received an email earlier this week from Mr Farmer, Director of Welfare, with details of a talk to be given next Friday by Jackie Cox. She will cover topics such as how the adolescent brain changes, the effects of stress, exams and friendship issues, and practical ways to help young people and their parents. (More information below under 'Forthcoming Events'.) We will be filming this talk and will make it available to parents via the Parent Portal for anyone who is not able to attend.
