What the school says...

Adcote School is a leading boarding and day school with a reputation for high pastoral care and high academic success. There is a tangible sense of community at the school, creating a warm and enabling atmosphere.

At Adcote we believe passionately in the importance of the individual. We believe that every child has the ability to excel in at least one particular area and that it is our job to discover and nurture these talents. Every girl when she leaves the school should feel she has achieved all she can both academically and intellectually. Adcote produces confident, enquiring and well-rounded girls who are equipped to play full and constructive roles in an ever changing society. As a matter of principle Adcote is not academically selective and we assess each student individual. Many of our pupils surprise their parents, and more importantly, themselves, by what they achieve.

We are fortunate to be located in a beautiful and safe rural setting of the Shropshire countryside in a magnificent Grade I listed building. The 30 acres of beautifully landscaped parkland surrounding the school cannot be underestimated, not only as wonderful recreational space, with tennis and netball courts and a forest school site but also as a reminder of the schools life story. These wonderful gardens provide an incredibly safe, secure and idyllic backdrop to this historic school.

In 2013, our school was ranked 4th nationally for our excellent academic results by the Department for Education; 65% of students achieved A* - A or their equivalent at A Level. Not only that, the introduction of our International Offices have seen us actively work harder to provide better services to our students who are from overseas, please contact us to learn more.
