Our Aims and Values

We aim to develop independent, curious and passionate learners to succeed in a changing world.

Our School Values are:

  • Respect
  • Perseverance
  • Integrity
  • Compassion
  • Aspiration

We actively promote democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. These are the Fundamental British Values which underpin all that we offer.

Shrewsbury House values – respect, perseverance, integrity, compassion and aspiration – permeate everything and the school’s motto, Alto Peto, is also in evidence, reminding pupils to ‘aim high’. Prep schools in this neck of the wood can have something of a reputation as hot houses but this does not feel like one of them, although the curriculum is challenging and rigorous.
