Where girls learn without limits

No 27 & No 28 Town Walls

Welcome to Shrewsbury High Junior School. With over 135 years of experience educating girls, we are the only all-through, all-girls’ school for ages 4-18 in Shropshire, offering first class facilities and an innovative curriculum, designed solely with girls in mind. Our girls thrive because we understand, more than anyone, how girls learn and develop.

 

Girls First

We are part of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST), the leading network of girls’ schools in the country.  As the only GDST school in the region, we offer a unique and tailored approach to private junior school education focused on how girls learn best. We are guided by one simple principle – nothing should hold a girl back, least of all herself.  

 

A Personalised Educational Journey

Our small class sizes ensure each girl receives focused attention and tailored learning experiences. Our dedicated and specialist staff provide nurturing, girl-centred pastoral care, fostering a sense of belonging. When your daughter joins our school, she joins a family of big and little sisters in the heart of our creative and vibrant community.

 

Innovative Learning Spaces

Bright, airy and modern classrooms with integrated technology, science and design technology spaces, two large indoor sports halls, an entire house dedicated to Music, another to Art, all-weather outdoor surfaces for sport, a theatre and a beautiful dining room encourage exploration and foster a love for learning, setting us apart from other primary schools in Shrewsbury.

Environments that Inspire

Nestled in the very heart of Shrewsbury, on the banks of the River Severn, our girls benefit from inspiring outdoor spaces. From the enclosed forest school and walled garden to the hidden orchard and beautiful junior school gardens –  every corner of our school is designed to ignite curiosity and a sense of wonder.

Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders

Our broad and creative curriculum is tailored specifically for girls. They work creatively from an early age to encourage a love of learning and give them the tools they need to problem solve and collaborate with peers. We focus on developing skills and character, preparing our students for every stage of their education and beyond.

Nurturing Individuality and Confidence

We are intentionally small and hugely ambitious for our girls, we aim to nurture each girl’s potential, helping her find her unique voice. We want each and every girl to thoroughly enjoy the adventure of school.  Our role is not just to educate but to inspire and guide, ensuring every girl at our all girls junior school is ready to go out into the world with confidence, ready to experiment and be brave rather than perfect.  Our girls are comfortable taking risks and are positive about the future.

Guided by Ambition and Care

Our ultimate ambition is to nurture your daughter’s potential and individuality, helping her find her voice and her place in the world.  As she finds her passions and grows in confidence and maturity, we stand beside her, every step of the way.
