As a result of career progression of the current Housemistress, Shrewsbury School has an exciting opportunity to appoint an inspirational Housemistress/ Housemaster to take over in Emma Darwin Hall from September 2018.
Houses at Shrewsbury are particularly known for their caring and supportive atmosphere, blending traditional values with excellent pastoral care.
