Located in the village of Baschurch, Shropshire, The Corbet School is a co-educational secondary school. The school has around 700 pupils aged 11-16, making it noticeably smaller than the average secondary school of its type. Previously known as the Corbet School Technology College, it adopted its current name in 2011, following its conversion to academy status. Although the vast majority of teaching takes place on-site, the school does make some limited use of off-site provision, for pupils with particular educational needs.

We offer a blend of traditional  values, success, courtesy and discipline with a real determination to achieve the highest possible academic standards, while offering opportunity to all.
