College Life


Principal, James Staniforth

“I am delighted you are thinking of studying at Shrewsbury Colleges Group. We are the largest college in Shropshire with the widest choice of courses available for school leavers to study. We also offer a huge range of other courses, including Apprenticeships, degree level, Distance Learning, free numeracy and literacy courses, vocational diplomas and hobby courses.

As Shrewsbury Colleges Group we can now offer academic excellence at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College at our English and Welsh Bridge town centre campuses and vocational excellence at Shrewsbury College, our technical and professional centre based at London Road.

We can provide the best facilities, teaching and resources for all of our students without losing what makes the two colleges special and unique. At the core of our success is our commitment to individual students. This means high quality teaching and close tutorial support. All subjects offer additional one to one and small group support for students who are struggling or who want to push themselves even further. Our excellence programme has been set up to provide additional support for students applying to the top universities. Our Student Support team is there to offer advice and guidance with any difficulties. We want you to enjoy your time with us and achieve your potential.”

College life isn’t just about studying, and student life is brilliant. SCG is a place where you will meet new friends and develop new interests. There are many activities taking place inside and outside college including sports, music, dance and drama. Every year we run trips across the country, Europe and the world, including to Greece, Italy and Paris. This blend of excellent teaching, support and enrichment is why so many students travel to us from across Shropshire, Telford and from Wales. Excellent transport links make it easy to get to our different campuses.

Our modern student-focussed facilities include The Bridges Café - where you can get breakfast, lunch and snacks and socialise. Students can also gain work experience working in the café. Student Services are based in The Hub so it’s easy to get advice on travel and financial help. Our Learning Resource Centre is a place for you to work and research. Our extensive indoor and outdoor sports facilities including a gym, 3G pitch and athletics track. More information on our facilities can be found here.

We also have regular Advice Events and College Taster Days throughout the year which are a great opportunity for you to find out more about us - so please check our Events section.
