To be nominated in categories that recognise the quality of our whole person education and the creative arts is a huge credit to the dedication of our pupils, teaching and support staff, and governors and supporters of Shrewsbury School.

“We are proud to offer our whole person education in a thriving boarding and day community and for this to be recognised in the Independent Senior School of the Year and Boarding School of the Year categories is testament to the hard work of staff and pupils.

“Following a stellar year of performing arts – from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to numerous plays, dance performances, musicals and concerts – it is fitting that our performers and the staff who inspired them are also recognised for their excellence and dedication.”
