Our Values

Selectivity

We endeavour to bring together exceptional students into our community of learning, whether these students are outstanding in the classroom, concert hall, sports field, on stage or simply in person. Each part of the school adopts best practices for its admissions, ensuring careful, precise and fair selectivity at all stages of entry. We are a selective school where ambition, determination and the pursuit of excellence are carefully nurtured.

Exceptional People

We are a caring, thoughtful community of exceptional people, from our talented students and ambitious parents to our hand-picked, fully-qualified staff. The Shrewsbury environment is people-centred. We recognise achievements of all kinds and continue to develop the professional skills of our primary asset, our staff. We strive to ensure that parents are fully engaged stakeholders in the learning process.

Our Excellence Programmes challenge and support students gifted in music, visual and performing arts and sport. We offer scholarships to exceptional students through a selection process that is rigorous, transparent and fair.

English Language

We are a community of language learners that recognises that the speaking of English brings our international community together. Shrewsbury students understand that the ability to think, learn and communicate in English will allow them to achieve their very highest potential at school, university and in the world of work.

Care & Compassion

Shrewsbury understands the pressures on young people in the modern world. Our teachers pride themselves on the care they give to children and the partnership they form with parents to allow children to be happy as well as successful. From community action to unparalleled university counselling, Shrewsbury endeavours to give priority to the highest standards of pastoral care and individual support.

We are a British international school that whilst being contemporary is firmly in the tradition of our sister school in the UK. We share its exemplary standards of achievement, care and governance and enjoy all the advantages of our location. Our learner profile provides a pathway that has served generations of Salopians—as our motto relates, if the heart is right, all will be well.
