Shrewsbury High School GDST

As part of the GDST family of schools, Shrewsbury High School has been educating girls in the heart of Shrewsbury since 1885.

Our school is literally built into the historic Town Walls. We welcome students aged 4-18 and we were created to put girls first, always. As leaders in educating girls, we offer exceptional teaching, tailored to the way girls learn, we encourage them to experiment, have a go, be brave. This is aided by small class sizes, expert pastoral care, collaboration and teamwork.

Our wonderful location, in the heart of this creative and forward-thinking town gives our pupils unique opportunities to learn from, and contribute to, their local community. Being the town school offers our family of big sisters and little sisters a stimulating environment in which to grow and learn. We have created an environment where a girl is fundamentally freer to be herself and enjoy the adventure of school.

Shrewsbury High School is part of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST), the UK’s leading family of independent girls’ schools. We are the only GDST school in the local area and as such we are able to bring all the advantages of this powerful network to our girls, including an alumnae network in excess of 70,000 members ready to support and mentor our students.

Bursaries & Scholarships

Shrewsbury High School is part of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST), the largest group of independent girls’ schools in the UK.

 

As a charity, the GDST aims to seek out the brightest, most deserving girls for bursaries and scholarships so that the largest possible number of talented girls can benefit from a GDST education. In particular, it aims as far possible to focus its support on girls for whom the chance of a GDST education would be a transformative, life-changing prospect.

 

The bursary scheme is managed and administered by the GDST, which is funded via charitable partnerships, donations and legacies from former pupils, their parents and other friends.

 

Bursaries and Scholarships are only available at our Senior School.  Scholarships are awarded on merit, irrespective of financial means. Offers are made based upon performance in the entrance examinations or audition for Year 7; Year 9, or in the case of Sixth Form scholarships for outstanding ability demonstrated in individual subjects and disciplines. A Scholarship can be combined with a bursary where there is financial need.

Art, Music, Drama and Sport Scholarships are available for entry into Year 7, Year 9 and Sixth Form and information about these scholarships will be sent to interested applicants. Students who receive scholarships in these subjects are expected to make a full contribution to the busy life of the school and show a full commitment to this subject during their time at the school.
