My daughter was incredibly impressed by the school and following her visit she has been really enthusiastic about the prospect of moving there next year. It has been very nice for us to see the visible change in her outlook and demeanour following the visit. Having found such a positive home in her current primary, I think she was concerned we would not be able to replicate that safe community and supported environment in her next school. We believe we have found it in your school. We are all excited for her and the many opportunities she will be offered at Shrewsbury High” (new parent)

We are proud to have been educating girls from across Shropshire and beyond since 1885 from our beautiful school here on Town Walls and on the banks of the River Severn. As part of the Girls’ Day School Trust, the largest network of independent girls’ schools in the country, we value our heritage and are true to the GDST founding principles of helping every girl fulfil her potential and dreams.

We believe being part of the GDST family of excellent schools gives our pupils many advantages and joins them to a global network of excellence and opportunity. Our combined strengths mean we can help girls perform confidently on a national level.

We offer girls’ only education because we believe it offers the best environment for girls to excel whatever her disposition and direction. Our girls are at the heart of everything we do and there are no limits to what a Shrewsbury High School girl can achieve. At this crucial stage in their development we understand that they learn differently from boys and we are experts in understanding their pastoral needs.

We seek to foster intellectual risk taking and build resilience so that our girls will develop into self- confident, forward thinking young women, ready to make a difference in the world in which they live.

With a commitment to innovative teaching and learning, we aim to bring out the best in each and every pupil, regardless of their starting point or background. We want to build pupils of character and enable them, through their own endeavour, to achieve beyond the bounds of expectation.

Shrewsbury High School is no ordinary school. We strive to ensure that there is no better environment in which to be challenged, no kinder environment in which to cope with setbacks and no richer environment for our pupils to discover their interests and fulfil their potential.

These are exciting times for Shrewsbury High School girls and whilst this website might give you some sense of what makes us unique please visit the school and meet our pupils in order to discover why we are so different from other schools in Shropshire.

I look forward to welcoming you to Shrewsbury High School.

Ms J Sharrock, Headteacher
