Shrewsbury is well-known 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 a very fine campus with both traditional and modern buildings. Facilities for study and recreation include IT suites, a theatre and assembly hall. The school's impressive sporting facilities include numerous football pitches, an astroturf, tennis, squash and fives courts, an indoor sports hall and a 25m 6-lane swimming pool.
