Working at SHS Trust

Shrewsbury House is an academically rigorous school. The boys, from 7-13, are highly able and do benefit from being stretched intellectually and nurtured pastorally.

Teaching at Shrewsbury House affords the opportunity to prepare boys for some of the most competitive world-class senior schools. The following schools are regular destinations for our boys: Charterhouse, Cranleigh School, Eton College, Epsom College, Hampton School, Harrow School, King’s College School (Wimbledon), Radley College, Reed’s School, St John’s School, St Paul’s School, The Royal Grammar School (Guildford), Tonbridge School, Wellington College, Winchester College and Westminster School. We recruit subject specialists who have experience in a variety of different spheres. Opportunities for extensive CPD abound and staff members are encouraged to attend courses regularly. Mentoring and coaching are features of working within the Trust which many staff take advantage of. There are also opportunities to engage socially with other staff members.

Teaching at Shrewsbury House is not for the faint-hearted and it will only suit those who are committed to delivering a world-class education and genuinely love what they do. Teaching at Shrewsbury House is about empowering boys and creating an environment in which everybody is somebody and where boys are prepared for life, not just for a future school. We cater for the academically gifted as well as all-rounder candidates.

Shrewsbury House School is committed to providing the very highest standard of teaching and pastoral care possible. Our staff are dedicated and incredibly generous with time, going to great lengths to ensure that each child settles in, is well looked after and happy at school.

We recognise that our teachers and support staff are our greatest asset, and therefore, ensure that our recruitment, induction, training and opportunities for growth are designed to recruit and retain staff who are experts in their field.
