“There were no doubts where my daughter was going for Sixth Form, she was brought up by SHS and she belongs to your community until the very last day. It is a great pleasure to see a happy, confident and thriving child maturing day by day under the careful supervision of the SHS team!” (Year 11 parent)
A Welcome from the Director of Sixth Form
I wish you a very warm welcome to the Sixth Form at Shrewsbury High School.
The next two years of your education represent the most exciting chapter in your education so far, a time of discovery, and the opportunity to spread your wings. It is almost entirely different from the years you have had in your school so far. Our Sixth Form offers the perfect balance of independence and guidance, and gives you the skills and opportunities to become confident, independent young women, supported and mentored so that you can make a significant and very positive impact upon the work around us, both now and in the decades ahead.
We offer a bespoke programme, tailored to you and which gives you the chance to experience opportunities far beyond academic studies: workshops to open wide your thinking, the chance to grapple with and explore new ideas, opportunities to help you succeed under pressure, and how to thrive in the cut and thrust of a board room situation. We will give you the skills to think creatively, present your ideas confidently, the tools to help you thrive in challenging interview contexts, how to network, how to negotiate, and even how to solve a crisis.
We will help you become confident, empowered young women, ready for the exciting world that awaits.
Mr Joseph Allan
Director of Sixth Form
Sixth Form Open Days
We believe our independent Sixth Form is the best in Shrewsbury, as the best-performing girls’ school at A-level. However, you don’t need to take our word for it; we would encourage you to come and have a look around the school for yourself.
Our Sixth Form open days and open evenings give you a chance to meet the teachers, hear from current students and get a feel for the atmosphere at Shrewsbury High School. You can ask questions, find out what subjects we offer and work out whether this is a place where you can feel at home.
Call us to arrange a visit on 01743 494 038.
About the Sixth Form
To learn more about our Sixth Form, navigate through our information pages where you can read about the subjects we offer, the opportunities available to our Sixth Form girls and the benefits of studying at a GDST high school.
Shrewsbury High School is an independent Sixth Form for girls. Being an independent, private school means we can offer even more to our students, including smaller classes, state of the art facilities and additional subjects — among a huge number of other benefits.
Wellbeing and Pastoral Care
Personal wellbeing is our priority. We are dedicated to the development of every one of our Sixth Form girls both academically and personally. We recognise that the wellbeing of our students is vital to their academic success and strive to create an environment in which every girl feels confident and supported throughout her A-levels.
Each student has a personal group tutor who offers support, guidance and help whenever it’s needed. The Head of Sixth Form oversees the personal and academic development of all the students in Y12 and Y13. At Shrewsbury High, no problem is too insurmountable.
Shropshire Sixth Form
Shrewsbury High School is based in the heart of Shropshire. We have students from Telford, Oswestry, Whitchurch, Bridgnorth and other surrounding towns. With our own network of school buses, which have routes throughout the region, every girl can have the opportunity to study at one of the best Sixth Forms in Shropshire.
