Shrewsbury High School Tops the GCSE League Table, Again 

Welcome from Michael Getty, Headmaster

Founded in 1885, Shrewsbury High is widely regarded as one of the UK’s leading independent schools and we are proud of the special blend of academic excellence, all round opportunity and pastoral care that we offer. From our website you will gain an insight into our friendly, stimulating environment where all pupils, whatever their talents or interests, have the opportunity to reach their full potential whether this be at the junior or senior level.

Shrewsbury High is one of the highest achieving schools in the country and was recently ranked in first place in Shropshire in the Independent School Council’s league table for GCSE points scored. In addition, it was once again prestigiously placed in the Times newspaper’s top 100 schools at A-level.

However, we value our broader education with equal importance. Holistic education is where we excel. We aim to ensure that our extracurricular provision at junior, senior and sixth form level is of the very highest of standards, from Music and the Performing Arts through to Sport and beyond. We aim to nurture each student academically and personally through highly skilled teaching in a happy, supportive and well equipped environment.

If you are in the process of choosing a school, the best way to catch the spirit of Shrewsbury High and experience the warmth and enthusiasm of our teaching staff and pupils is to come and visit. Shrewsbury High educates girls seamlessly through from age 3 to 18 and boys from 3 to 13. I am always pleased to be able to meet parents and prospective students to answer questions and to provide a tour of our school so please do not hesitate to contact us.

We do look forward to meeting you.

Michael Getty
