Shrewsbury School

School Firsts

Thursday 6 June 2019

School Firsts are one of the highest honours at Shrewsbury, rewarding pupils who have demonstrated exceptional contributions to School life. They are awarded each term by a committee of Upper Sixth Formers.

The committee members take their work seriously, for two main reasons: firstly, this is a good example of pupil power – while teachers may make nominations, it is only those ten or so Upper Sixth pupils sitting on the committee who have the power to vote; secondly, to retain the value of the ‘School First’, precious few are handed out.

Nowadays School Firsts have been split into two types: sporting and non-sporting. Below is a list of those pupils who have been given the coveted award this term for their exceptional contributions to School life in non-sporting activities:

For their outstanding leadership of and contributions to the Bastille Society:
Libby Hedges and Ebrahim Jamshid

For her exceptional contributions to School Drama:
Eleanor Niblett

For their exceptional contributions to the musical life of the School:
Matthew Tsang and Felix Jebb
