Award Winning Prep School

Welcome to Shrewsbury High Prep School, a happy, ambitious, award-winning independent school in the heart of Shropshire, welcoming boys and girls from the age of 3.

We are happy to accept children to our Prep School throughout the school year, so if you would like to talk to us about your son or daughter joining the School, please contact our Admissions Officer, Sharon Jones, on 01743 494 038 or email to arrange a visit and find out more.

Shrewsbury High Prep School enjoys wonderful open spaces in its 14 acre site and yet is centrally based in the heart of Shrewsbury.  We view our beautiful grounds as an extension of the classroom and use every opportunity to make the most of them.  With buildings that are a mix of traditional and modern and with space to learn, play and explore, we want our pupils to feel inspired and challenged in a supportive and enthusiastic environment.

We take great pride in encouraging children to have a genuine thirst for knowledge and a love of learning.  We also believe good manners and respect are core values to be celebrated and encouraged alongside academic achievement.

Shrewsbury High Prep School's sports provision was recognised when we were named Winners at the Independent School Awards.  The award recognises the quality of Sport at Shrewsbury High and in particular the amount and quality of collaboration that the school undertakes with local maintained sector schools.  The Prep School's sports provision was, in particular, an important factor in our receiving this unprecedented accolade. 

There is a very special atmosphere at Shrewsbury High Prep and you will always receive a very warm welcome should you choose to visit us.
