International Overview

Shrewsbury School crest

Shrewsbury School delivers whole person education in a thriving and inclusive boarding and day school community that champions the individual.  

Founded by Royal Charter in 1552, Shrewsbury School is one of the 'great' nine schools in England identified by the Clarendon Commission of 1861. Over the centuries it has grown in size and reputation and is now ranked amongst the leading co-educational boarding schools in the world, educating some 800 pupils aged 13-18 years.

On a breath-taking 110-acre site on the banks of the River Severn, pupils participate in a wide range of sporting, music and co-curricular activities, as well as being encouraged to engage in adventure and charitable endeavour. The academic provision at Shrewsbury School is tailored to the needs and enthusiasms of the individual and engages pupils in a learning process that combines inspirational teaching with a commitment to encouraging intellectual curiosity. Shrewsbury School aims to ensure that all its pupils leave as fully rounded, well-educated and responsible adults, committed to contributing to their communities.

International Family of Schools

British education is quite rightly perceived as the gold standard globally, and here at Shrewsbury School we delight in playing our part in developing outstanding schools around the world. Our first international school, opened in Bangkok back in 2003, has become the benchmark for quality education in the city and the wider region. So successful has the venture been that we opened a second campus in Bangkok in 2018 to keep up with demand, while at the same time opening a new school in Hong Kong. In 2021, Shrewsbury signed an agreement for a new premium international school to be launched in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

The attraction to both local families and expatriates is clear: our international schools have become recognised for the highest levels of academic achievement, excellence in sport, creative and performing arts, and a wide variety of co-curricular opportunities with which the Shrewsbury name is synonymous; all this while preparing pupils for the modern world in the comfort of their local environment.
