Why study at Shrewsbury Colleges Group?

Why study at Shrewsbury Colleges Group?

We support you in ensuring that your next step after SCG fits in with your ambitions, whether it’s university, an Apprenticeship or securing employment in your chosen field.

Our students are more likely to gain top degrees than students from any other sixth form college or independent school. This year 16 of our students were offered places at the prestigious Oxford and Cambridge Universities - a record for the College.

We were the only college to have two apprentices winning gold at WorldSkills UK, the largest multi-trade competition in the UK. Winning gold gives entrants the honour of going to the WorldSkills final in Russia as part of Team UK.

Whether you are interested in studying A Levels, a vocational course, or earning whilst you learn through an Apprenticeship, we offer opportunities for you to excel.

A Level Chemistry (Biology, Mathematics, Further Mathmatics)
Previous Institution: Corbet School

The College has a brilliant reputation and creates a lot of future Russell Group students. Having the opportunity to take part in the Royal Chemistry Society’s Schools’ Analyst Competition was a useful experience and the support systemat College is great - you can email your teachers whenever you need their help. I would like to study Biochemistry in 2020, so I will spend my next year improving my knowledge through work experience and researching the best suited university for my needs.

Level 1 Electrical
Previous Institution: Sir John Talbot's School

Electrical Installation gets you ready for the work environment. It is totally different to school, which is what I wanted for my further education and the teachers treat you with respect. They let you know when you’re doing well and they’ll put you right if you’re going wrong.

Health & Social Care BTEC (History, Sociology)
Previous Institution: The Priory School

 I took Health & Social Care because I want to be a primary school teacher. It is an assignment based course, so there is less pressure and you get to do amazing placements for hands-on experience and I went to a primary school. I will be going to study BA Primary Education after College.
