Values

Selectivity

We endeavour to bring together exceptional students into our community of learning, whether these students are outstanding in the classroom, concert hall, sports field, on stage or simply in person. The school adopts best practices for its admis­sions, ensuring careful, precise and fair selectivity at all stages of entry. We are a selective school where ambition, deter­mina­tion and the pursuit of excellence are carefully nurtured.

Exceptional People

We are a caring, thoughtful community of exceptional people, from our talented students and ambitious parents to our hand-picked fully-qualified staff. The Shrewsbury environment is people-centred. We recog­nise achievements of all kinds and continue to develop the professional skills of our primary asset, our staff. Our community engages parents as part of the learning process.

Commitment & Renewal

We are a school that is engaged in a process of continual improvement, growth and renew­al, recognising the rapid changes required to keep pace with developments in education. Our development plans are dedi­cated to bringing quality staff to a school whilst ensuring, committed invest­ment in infrastructure and facilities. Our purpose-built school is modern, contemporary and designed to enhance the learning expe­ri­ence of students of the 21st century.

Outstanding Opportunities

We offer an impressive range of activities to extend the interests and horizons of every student. Our broad curriculum chal­lenges, supports and inspires students within academic, aesthetic and physical fields. We offer scholarships to exceptional students through a selection process that is rigorous, transparent and fair.

English Language

We are a community of language learners that recognises that the speaking of English brings our international community to­gether. Shrewsbury students understand that the ability to think, learn and com­muni­cate in English will allow them to achieve their very highest potential at school, university and in the world of work.

Care & Compassion

Shrewsbury understands the pressures on young people in the modern world. Our teachers pride themselves on the care they give to children and the partnership they form with parents to allow children to be happy as well as successful. From com­munity action to unparalleled university coun­selling, Shrewsbury endeavours to give priority to the highest standards of pastoral care.

The Shrewsbury Way

Intus si recte ne labora — We are a British inter­national school that whilst being con­tem­porary is firmly in the tradition of our sister school in the UK. We share its exemplary standards of achievement, care and governance and enjoy all the advan­tages of our location. Our learner profile pro­vides a pathway that has served generations of Salopians — as our motto relates, if the heart is right, all will be well.
