Shrewsbury Colleges Group gives students greater choices and dedicated subject resources at different campus locations and is proud to offer the largest and most flexible curriculum offer within Shropshire, comprising of A Levels, Vocational Diplomas, Apprenticeships and Higher Education qualifications.
Student Services are based on all three campuses, offering impartial advice and guidance to help you make decisions about your education and training or choice of career. We will also support you with issues with your health, travel well-being, finances and studies.
We believe it’s important for parents/carers to be a part of each student’s progress at College. Each academic year parents/carers can discuss progress and progression plans with teaching staff. These events are provided for consultation between parents, staff and students so we strongly recommend that parents and students attend these evenings together.

Leo who came to SCG from Bishops Castle plans to read Computer Science at University of Cambridge.
Nine students are progressing to either Oxford or Cambridge Universities and more than 720 students have places at university already confirmed.
SCG Principal, James Staniforth said after seeing the overall results “Our students should be very proud of the grades they have been awarded. These grades reflect the hard work and commitment our students have put into their studies. These achievements are also the result of the excellent teaching and support they have received, both at college and in their previous schools, and the support of their families. Well done to everyone on all the successes.”
He added: “Our students have had to cope with the situation that the COVID pandemic has presented, and they have risen to the challenges. They have shown tremendous resilience and flexibility throughout their time with the college, and they have quickly had to learn new skills like online learning and how to communicate digitally.”
Some of our students
The college experienced technical issues with the platform ProPortal for students and parents to access their results. Some students and parents were unable to access the results and the college apologies for any anxiety or distress that these technical issues caused. The college had taken steps to upgrade its IT capabilities to deal with large numbers of enquiries ahead of the results day, however, a software glitch meant that the ProPortal system had service outages.
