We have a big birthday coming up and we want you to join us in celebrating it!


On Saturday 2nd May we will be hosting a celebration event to mark Shrewsbury High School’s 135th birthday and we would like to invite our whole school community to join in the party. Shrewsbury High School has been firmly rooted in the heart of this wonderful town for 135 years, empowering young women to go out into the world with confidence and courage.

We will be celebrating our history, but also looking ahead with excitement to the future as we continue to celebrate the character, endeavour and achievement of all our pupils.

We will be sending out more details over the coming weeks of how our pupils, families, alumnae and wider community can get involved with anniversary events throughout the year, as well as more details on the 2nd May celebrations.



Alumnae Hall of Fame


We will be unveiling our Alumnae Hall of Fame in the Old Hall to recognise some of our wondeful former pupils. We want to celebrate the spectacular things that girls go onto achieve as women after leaving the school. From scientists to business leaders, we hope to create a space that shows that there really is no limit to what a Shrewsbury High School girl can achieve.

Please send in your suggestions of inspiring Shrewsbury High Alumnae that we can include and celebrate throughout our annivesary year.  Email alumnae@shr.gdst.net with your suggestions.
