We are very proud of the Sixth Form at Shrewsbury High School, and we are committed to providing a rich and full education experience.  Classes are small and tailored to the specific needs of our Sixth Formers.  

Our Sixth Form provision has just been recognised with a nomination at this year's Times Independent School of the Year Awards.  SHS Sixth Form has been nominated for the award on the basis of the quality and breadth of the school’s provision for Sixth Formers. The SHS Sixth Form ‘Tripos’ which provides girls with a wide ranging combination of A levels, Extended Project Qualifications, Diplomas in Languages for Business, Arts awards and more received the honour in the Times Education Supplement 

The School also received a second nomination recognising our Bio-med Programme, which prepares would-be medics for University and our annual Bio-Med Conference. This programme won an award at the Summer’s Education Business Awards ceremony in July.

A fantastic range of opportunities awaits students in our Sixth Form, from leadership roles to Internships and additional clubs and societies to stretch our pupils far beyond their intellectual curiosity.  We offer close monitoring and individual support and it is the mix of academic excellence, strong community and provision of enriching activities that makes our Sixth Form such an outstanding place to work and learn.

The Sixth Form facilities have undergone a complete modernisation with our new Sixth Form building providing a relaxed and sociable area with beautiful common rooms where the Sixth Formers feel at ease.   These refurbishments will extend to include a new study and work area with designated banks of Sixth Form IT facilities, allowing for Sixth Formers to stay in school outside of normal school hours to study and socialise.

With our leading Sixth Form facilities, tailored enrichment activities and outstanding results, we are confident that we can offer your daughter a successful route to university or employment.
