What The Good Schools Guide 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. One parent told us, ‘it’s almost too good to be true.’ There are several ways of looking at that but we recommend you visit and see for yourselves.

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.

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.
