Institutions Profile

Location Shropshire, United Kingdom


Wrekin College is an Independent Co-educational Day and Boarding School for students aged 11 to 18 in a beautiful part of Shropshire, England. Founded in 1880 by Sir John Bayley the school still works to his original philosophy of providing individual attention to individual students. Well served by road and rail links, it combines the benefits of rural and urban living, and is happy place to work and study.

Wrekin is over 130 years old, with all the traditions of an English education. But Wrekin is also a cosmopolitan, vibrant community. International students play a full part in this, right from the start, and everyone here warmly welcomes the insights they bring.

Part of the Allied Schools, Wrekin is also a member of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference.

Wrekin has a strong academic record, consistently ALPS ranked within in the top UK schools for added-value at A-level. Almost all the student leavers move on to university in the UK with Nottingham and Liverpool being particularly popular and a percentage of our students progressing to 'Oxbridge' universities.
