Shrewsbury Colleges Group has been formed by the merger of Shrewsbury College of Arts & Technology and Shrewsbury Sixth Form College and was formally constituted on 1 August 2016. The merger allows the two colleges to focus wholly on what they do best: offer an exceptionally high performing Advanced Level centre for academically motivated students at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College and a leading vocational centre of excellence at Shrewsbury College. It also allows an increased focus on the development of much needed Apprenticeships and Higher Apprenticeships.

Shrewsbury Colleges Group will give students even greater flexibility with their programmes and access to dedicated subject resources at different campus locations and is proud to offer the largest and most flexible curriculum offer within Shropshire, comprising A Levels and vocational diplomas, with Apprenticeships and Higher Education qualifications as progression routes. Students still apply to each college and will 'belong' to each college community, as each college will retain their individual identities and characteristics.
