"We are absolutely delighted for the 16 pupils who have been offered Oxbridge places this year," said Headmaster Leo Winkley. "This very strong showing is great credit to the pupils themselves and those many colleagues who have encouraged and inspired them to pursue academic challenge at the highest level.
"With offers in subjects as diverse as English Literature, Biology, Natural Sciences, Philosophy, Engineering, Music, Mathematics and Computer Science, this wide mix of courses showcases the rich variety of the academic life at Shrewsbury. A tremendous achievement and inspirational for those in the years to follow."
This year's number of Oxbridge offers (the highest since 2009) builds on an impressive historic record; Shrewsbury School has the rare distinction of having had Oxbridge offers in double figures for all but one of the last 20 years.
