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.

Level 3 Advanced Hairdressing
Previous Institution: Shrewsbury Academy

I came to SCG because the atmosphere felt good when I came to look around. The staff are friendly and helpful and they will always encourage you to achieve your goals. I’ve enjoyed working with real clients during training and work experience in Evolve Salon.

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.
