  • Shrewsbury School is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 13 to 18 in Shropshire.
    The school is fully co-educational, with full boarding and an integral day community. It aims to deliver a 'dynamic education that develops the abilities and enthusiasms of each and every individual girl and boy.'

    Headmaster Leo Winkley says: 'School should be serious fun. Learning and enjoyment go hand in hand: in the classroom, through a vibrant co-curricular programme and in the communal life of the School. At Shrewsbury, we aim to provide the most diverse, challenging and supportive environment in which all our children can thrive and exceed their own expectations.'

    'The Shrewsbury School motto gets to the heart of our vision: Intus Si Recte Ne Labora – ‘if all is right within, trouble not’. Ours is not a superficial, skin-deep education but one that seeks to develop the whole person. If our values are true, and we live by them with honesty and conviction; if we look beyond the surface of things to question and champion independence of mind; and if we learn deeply in order to lead lives of meaning, generosity and purpose, then we will see the full fruits of a Shrewsbury education.'
