Shrewsbury Academy opened in September 2016 following the merger of two Shrewsbury secondary schools and is part of the Shrewsbury Academies Trust.

We are passionate about what we do, both in terms of the specialisms we teach and also the work we do with young people.  We have a thriving extra-curricular timetable including Science clubs, Science careers days, University visits and outside visitors.  

At GCSE we offer the AQA separate sciences and we have introduced the new specification Trilogy Award this academic year.  These new schemes are planned by subject leads within the department.
