School Description

Adcote School for Girls has a mission to provide a first class, progressive education for all the girls in their care. They understand the challenges that modern women will face in their futures and their unique CLEAR learning programme equips them with all the skills they will need in order to thrive in the 21st Century.

There are two boarding houses where structure and routine are key. Both houses have common rooms where the girls can relax, watch television, play games or simply have a hot drink and socialise. Meals are eaten as a boarding community in the Darby restaurant and give opportunities to mix across houses and year groups.

Adcote School supports active school life by offering numerous sports such as horseback riding, basketball, gymnastics and badminton.
The arts program encourages girls to express their creative side and includes courses in Art & Design, Textiles, Performing Arts, and iMedia Design.

Adcote School was the first school in the UK to offer a Chartered Management Institute qualification to students and was named the ISA Senior School of the Year Winner 2020 - 2021!

The beautiful town of Shrewsbury is located near the England and Wales border, 1 hour from Birmingham and 1.5 hours from Liverpool. It has all the amenities you would expect of a city, like museums, cafes, festivals; but with the charm of an English market town.
