In addition to the Academy and Sporting courses that are run for children during the school holidays and at half terms at Shrewsbury School, a number of external organisations have also chosen Shrewsbury and its facilities as the most suitable venue for their course. Many of these courses are residential, some are for children and others for adults, but all are arranged and booked externally.
Some of the clients we have had the pleasure of hosting here at Shrewsbury School include:
- Discovery Summer
- The National Children's Choir of Great Britain
- Manchester United
- English Cricket Board
- HD Sportsworld
We offer accommodation across our School site in our eleven boarding houses; with a range of options including en suite, single bedrooms and larger dormitory style bedrooms
Meals at Shrewsbury are taken in our purpose-built catering hall, Kingsland Hall ('KH'), where pupils and guests choose from a wide variety of foods from our self-service counters. All of our food is cooked from scratch, using fresh ingredients and local suppliers wherever possible. We happily cater for guests with special dietary needs such as dairy/lactose intolerance, gluten-free diets and halal food. Does your course involve spending time off-site? No problem. Our Catering Team are happy to arrange Packed Lunches, Snacks and Drinks to suit your requirements and fit alongside your schedule.
There is a wide-range of choice for activities at Shrewsbury School during your stay with us. Alongside games, social space and TV rooms in our Boarding Houses we have other leisure facilities which we are proud to offer.
Based in the School's multi-million pound sports complex, we offer a wide range of activities that make full use of our outstanding facilities, including a 25-metre deck level pool, state-of-the-art fitness suite, Racquets Club offering four squash and four tennis courts, three-court Sports Hall, shooting range, indoor Cricket Centre, elite training Boat House, including ergos and an indoor tank, and an array of excellent grass playing pitches for a number of sports.
