Shrewsbury School

Term Dates

To save parents having to drive to Shrewsbury several times each term, the School lays on a fleet of coaches at the start and end of each term, at either end of half-term and on ‘Coach Weekend’ exeats. For more details, please refer to our Coach Routes page.

Please refer to our Calendar for details of all events that are taking place at Shrewsbury.
