Shrewsbury High School GDST

As part of the GDST family of schools, Shrewsbury High School has been educating girls for over 135 years.

We value our heritage and are true to our GDST founding principles of helping every girl fulfil her potential and dreams. From September 2021 our Junior school will reunite with our Senior school on our historic Town Walls site, bringing all our pupils together to create the only cohesive, all-through, all-girls, educational offering in the heart of Shrewsbury. Although our Junior and Senior schools will be distinct, the opportunities for cross phase collaboration, seamless transition and a coherent learning environment are extremely exciting. We will be able to reshape and reimagine our school for the future, as a more coherent space where individuals can discover their passions and develop their confidence. It will allow us to modernise our campus, develop new facilities and improve existing ones with the creation of innovative teaching, social and green spaces for the benefit of all our pupils. The quality of education parents expect from Shrewsbury High School will be enhanced by the reunification of the two schools and a return to our roots.

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.
