Discover Shrewsbury High School’s Senior School

When searching for secondary schools in Shrewsbury, parents and students are looking for  excellence and innovation in a supportive, nurturing environment. Shrewsbury High School offers just that, and has done so since 1885. As part of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST), we pride ourselves in building ambitious, resilient young women ready to make their mark on the world.

“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


Connected Globally, Rooted Locally

The schools of the GDST were born of rebellion and resolve and these founding principles resonate throughout our school, fostering an environment where every girl can discover her true potential. Connected to a global network of excellence, your daughter will receive unique opportunities to thrive on national and international platforms.


Education Tailored for Girls

Drawing on the latest research and pedagogy in girls’ education, we have created an environment that champions their distinct learning and pastoral needs. Our goal? To produce confident, visionary young women ready to effect positive change in the world.

Our commitment? Innovative teaching and unparalleled personal growth for your daughter.

At Shrewsbury High School, girls learn without limits, proudly ambitious and with high expectations of the world and their place within it.  We help them develop a strong sense of self-worth, imbued with the initiative and resilience to thrive.
