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.

Health & Social Care BTEC
Previous Institution: Meole Brace School, Shrewsbury

Currently, I am a student midwife at De Montfort University in Leicester. Being able to study Health and Social Care and A Level Biology helped me prepare for university and provided me with the vocational skills and experiences, together with the academic ability, which gave me a significant advantage in an extremely competitive course and profession. It was the best decision I made choosing these courses.

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.

A Level Further Mathematics (Mathematics, Physics and German)
Previous Institution: Meole Brace School

Studying here has given me an even greater love of Maths because of the fantastic Maths department. The teachers are brilliant and I have access to all the resources I need. I got the opportunity to take part in the British Maths Olympiad and that really helped with my application to University. I am going to study Maths at St Johns College, Oxford University and I aspire to do academic research after that.
