The Curriculum

Follow GCSE curriculum, then at least three A-level/Pre-U subjects, with a complimentary Extended Project or Global Perspectives Qualification or a further A-level or Pre-U course.

Games & The Arts

Strong in football, cricket, rowing and cross-country. School productions draw praise with sell-out performances at Edinburgh Fringe. The quality of music is remarkable. The Barnes Theatre provides a 206-seat auditorium, two drama studios, dance studio and technical workshop.

Pastoral Care

Shrewsbury School’s Latin motto, ‘Intus si recte, ne labora’ – ‘If all is right within, trouble not’, has underpinned much of the school’s longstanding focus on moral integrity and pupils’ wellbeing.

Our pupils’ wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do at Shrewsbury. The house system we have at the school is fundamental to this and creates a ‘home from home’ environment for the pupils.

University Places

In 2023, 87% of students progressed to their first-choice university destinations with 30% enrolling in a world’s top 50 university.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We aim to instil values that guide a person through life; love of learning that lights fires in their minds; skills and aptitudes that equip them for the world of work; friendships that radiate through a lifetime; and the willingness to embrace a world of change.

Outstanding Characteristics

Life at Shrewsbury is founded on a close partnership between staff, parents and pupils to promote family life, foster responsibility, and balance the vibrant school community.

The celebration of individuals is central to Shrewsbury. In whatever sphere, a pupil will find support and encouragement to enthuse and inspire them to exceed expectations and meet the challenges with confidence.
