Wrekin College

Wrekin College is a flourishing independent co-educational day and boarding school in Shropshire, and a very happy place to work and study. Wrekin is most interested in bringing as diverse a group of people together under one banner and stretching, challenging and supporting them to be the best version of themselves as individuals, and as a community. 

We have two junior houses and six senior houses, three of which accommodate both our UK and international boarders combined. Opportunities abound in music, art, sport, drama, debating, Combined Cadet Force and Duke of Edinburgh, as well as many other activities.

“ Wrekin helps every child be the best version of themselves.”

However, our focus is on academic achievement, producing well-educated and rounded individuals, with a wealth of skills to enable them to confidently enter the world of further education and employment. Our extensive co-curricular programme is a vital part of that focus; Wrekin’s Character Adventure Training initiative, which includes our Business School, CCF and Duke of Edinburgh schemes, form part of our wider Employability curriculum.


Well served by transport links, it combines the benefits of rural and urban living, and is an unusually happy place to work and study. The school community is very strong, with excellent relationships between pupils and staff. Wrekin is over 130 years old, with all the traditions of an English education. But we are also a cosmopolitan, vibrant community.



We are proud to welcome children of Forces families and military bursaries are available for children of HM Forces personnel. Specialist staff with first-hand military experience will make the transition to Wrekin straightforward for the whole family.
