Shrewsbury is renowned as a traditional independent school. It was founded in 1552 and has Charles Darwin amongst its famous 'old boys'. It is situated across the River Severn from the thriving market town of Shrewsbury. Manchester and Birmingham airports are approximately 1.5 hours by road; London Heathrow approximately 3-4 hours.

It has an exceedingly fine campus with both historic and modern buildings. Many of the facilities for study and recreation are top-rate and include large IT suites, a theatre, assembly hall, and DVD 'cinema'.
