32 Town Walls, Shrewsbury, SY1 1TN


Shrewsbury High School has been educating girls in the heart of Shrewsbury since 1885, our school is literally built into the historic Town Walls.

We welcome students aged 4-18 and we were created to put girls first, always. As leaders in educating girls, we offer exceptional teaching, tailored to the way girls learn, we encourage them to experiment, have a go, and be brave. This is aided by small class sizes, expert pastoral care, collaboration and teamwork.

"They've lit little fires in my daughter's brain and she's absolutely blossoming", (SHS Parent, Good Schools Guide).

Our wonderful location, in the heart of this creative and forward-thinking town, gives our pupils unique opportunities to learn from, and contribute to, their local community. Being the town school offers our family of big sisters and little sisters a stimulating environment in which to grow and learn.

Shrewsbury High School is part of the Girls' Day School Trust (GDST), the UK's leading family of independent girls' schools. We are the only GDST school in the local area and as such we are able to bring all the advantages of this powerful network to our girls, including an alumnae network in excess of 70,000 members ready to support and mentor our students.

"A small, friendly and happy school that parents tell us has given their daughters wings to fly. Fresh, exciting and buzzy yet steeped in history. We loved it". (Good Schools Guide)
