Adcote School for Girls, Shrewsbury:
Situated in Shrewsbury, in the West Midlands of England, Adcote School for Girls is an independent boarding and day school for girls. Founded in 1907, Adcote is the only 'purely girls' independent school in Shropshire, providing a Montessori nursery, junior and senior schools. The school has excellent full-time, weekly or occasional boarding facilities for girls aged 7 to 18. We also offer learning support, a gifted and talented programme as well as English language courses for international students.
Adcote is a non-selective school for girls which strives to:
- Deliver successful educational achievements through good teaching, leading to our girls meeting or exceeding individual academic expectations
- Provide a broad range of extra-curricular activities and events in order to offer further opportunities for pupil excellence, enthusiasm and experience
- Foster a caring environment, leading to personal pupil happiness and good relationships between all members of the School community, including parents
- Nurture girls' individual talents within small classes and safe, secure surroundings, enabling them to realise their full potential
- Build self-respect and self-confidence, thereby equipping our girls with the skills to tackle life in the 21st century.

We are lucky that Adcote is its own multi-cultural society. We welcome pupils and staff from a variety of countries and they bring a wealth of cultural diversity into Adcote. Over the years this has included students from Hong Kong, mainland China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Japan, Spain, Germany, Russia, Romania, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Iran, Greece and America and Canada. We also have visiting staff from the Japanese Cultural exchange programme and gap year students from Australasia.
- Full-time, weekly or occasional boarding facilities are available for girls aged 7 to 18. Boarders live on the first and second floors of the house where the rooms are airy, spacious and attractive. Most girls enjoy sharing a room, whilst some of the Sixth Form have a study bedroom of their own.
- Each student has a personal tutor to offer friendship, support and guidance. In addition to tutors, responsibility for the care, personal development, welfare and general happiness of boarders rests with the resident Pastoral Deputy, who is assisted by three resident matrons and supported by the school doctors. The boarding team provide support for the girls in their academic work and encourage involvement in extracurricular activities.
- Adcote’s underlying principle is consideration for others and we have a strong sense of both family and traditional values in the House. There is a happy mixture of local girls and those whose homes are elsewhere in the UK, with students from other countries who have chosen to study in England.
- Our aim is to provide a safe and homely environment that enables each girl in our care to become a self-sufficient and independent young woman, fully equipped to face the challenges of life in the 21st century.
- Adcote is a full termly boarding school, and girls are well looked after, not only during the week but at weekends, too. As part of our imaginative provision for both day girls and boarders, we run trips to local venues for shopping, swimming and bowling, visits to concert halls and theatres in the region, and weekend trips to places such as The Eden Project, Bath, and Hadrian's Wall.
