Shrewsbury International School Phnom Penh will be established as a co-educational international boarding school for girls and boys between the ages of 2 and 18.
The school in Phnom Penh represents the latest exciting chapter in Shrewsbury’s international developments, following on from the establishment of successful partner schools in Bangkok and Hong Kong.
The early years school will open in the heart of the city in 2022, followed by primary and secondary education on a purpose-built campus with both boarding and day provisions. The school will follow Shrewsbury’s distinctive version of whole-person education Floreat, which offers the very best academic, co-curricular and pastoral provision with state-of-the-art classroom, sporting, drama, music and living facilities.
Commenting on the developments, Headmaster Leo Winkley said: “We are tremendously excited at Shrewsbury to be beginning this venture together with our new international school in Phnom Penh.
“We are extremely excited to bring new families to the Salopian community through this global connection and we welcome the educational opportunities that will arise with it. We look forward to sharing ideas and good practices with teaching staff with a global mindset as we educate our children to be future leaders around the world.”
