COVID-19 Policy

Shrewsbury School has produced a COVID-19 policy with the most up to date Government documentation and sector advice. It contains policy and procedures to mitigate and manage the risks associated with COVID-19.

The following axioms have been applied:

  • We wish to provide the best possible on-site experience for pupils.
  • We will operate in a way which is safe and manageable for pupils and staff.

In addition to Government advice, we continue to work with sector experts and forums e.g. BSA, HMC, ISC and other schools around the world with whom we can share best practice.

Please follow this link to view our COVID-19 Policy 

As part of our commitment to provide a safe environment for all Salopians we have adopted the BSA COVID-Safe Charter
