What says..

Good academic results, good drama, art, music and sport; good out of school activities. The adventure all begins in a wonderfully imaginative nursery with magic grass, a Once Upon a Time chair in the trees, and bright, glorious teachers.

What the school says...

A prep school with an edge; Shrewsbury High's Prep School is a friendly, inviting school for girls and boys, where parents are partners in the education process. Shrewsbury High School's Prep is located on a wonderful 14 acre site a short walk from the Senior School in the centre of Shrewsbury; at Year 7 the girls go on to our renowned girls' Senior Department while the boys remain at the Prep, being prepared for the Common Entrance Examination which they take in Year 8, for entrance to the best senior schools.

Safe, friendly and welcoming, Shrewsbury High's Prep School is a happy and stimulating environment for your child's early education. Our approach is hands-on, practical and creative, making the most of our exciting specialist teaching areas and glorious outdoor spaces. Our nursery cares for children as young as three and accepts vouchers.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head of prep school

Since September 2015, Kate Millichamp, previously assistant head of Wolverhampton Grammar Junior School which she helped set up with the head after joining school in 2007. Before that was at Brewood Middle School for seven years, teaching maths and art to years 5-8.


Entry into the nursery from age 3 ‘with no formal testing.’ Places in reception by means of formal assessments during a day spent at the school with the class that the pupil might eventually join. Parents are advised of any areas which might need special attention from a tutor. So it isn’t just in London that the young are being specially prepared, though parents assured us it wasn’t as gruelling as that extract from the prospectus might suggest.
