Up until Year 11 all pupils will also have regular lessons in PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) which gives children opportunities to develop more confidence across a range of issues related to growing up, maturing and dealing with health, relationships and sexual topics.

At ‘A’ levels choices are widened to include new subjects, especially in the humanities and social sciences (eg. Economics, Philosophy, Global Politics) but also link to earlier pathways to provide continuity and progression.

The co-curricular programme is fully supported by passionate and skilled staff who deliver the programme, by excellent facilities and by the opportunities that come from being part of a wider regional network of British international schools, and part of the Shrewsbury family of schools.

As at primary level, pupils at secondary school will be encouraged to ‘try themselves out’ and ‘take risks’ by taking part in activities that are new to them. At secondary school,  the emphasis shifts to developing excellence, leadership and commitment to fewer co-curricular endeavours. Pupils are also guided to ensure they participate in a range of activities that give opportunities to develop interest and talent in sport, the creative arts and service. In essence, co-curricular involvement is fundamental to the Floreat model of whole-person education, and for pupils at Shrewsbury International School Phnom Penh, this is a significant and enjoyable element of their schooling.

Co-curricular activities take place every day after school and on weekends.

Boarding at Shrewsbury International School Phnom Penh will allow pupils to live, study and grow together. Based on a traditional British boarding school model, boarding staff will be professional educators who provide excellent care and support. Boarding life will provide pupils with the ideal balance in their lives to ensure that they become healthy, independent and confident young people. Having opportunities for leadership and developing life-long friendships are two of the most valuable outcomes of boarding at Shrewsbury International School Phnom Penh.

Like any ambitious and high-achieving school, Shrewsbury International School Phnom Penh knows that children need challenge and support in equal measure. All pupils will feel that they are known, valued and belong. Each pupil will be allocated a Tutor, a teacher who spends time every day with their Tutor group. The Tutor, and the House to which they belong, form the basis of the pastoral system at Shrewsbury International School Phnom Penh. However, pastoral care at the school is not only the responsibility of a narrow number of professionals; it is a shared responsibility of all members of the community. By supporting children to find their own solutions to problems, all children will be encouraged to develop maturity, confidence and independence. The Salopian Virtue of ‘Kindness’ colours our approach to all we do and positive relationships are felt by all.

Houses will form the core of pastoral care at Shrewsbury International School Phnom Penh. As at Shrewsbury School (UK), the House system is a uniquely British manner in which schools encourage a sense of identity, belonging and teamwork. House competitions provide excellent opportunities for life lessons to be learnt as pupils learn to win and lose together. Houses provide a ‘family’ for pupils within the larger identity of the school and children have the opportunity to shape the traditions, character and history of their own House.

‘A’ levels are acknowledged to be one of the most robust and respected programmes of study in the world and unlock entry to the world’s most sought-after universities courses not only in the UK, but in the USA, Europe and other jurisdictions such as Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Australia. Shrewsbury School (UK) regularly sends pupils to an impressive range of world-class universities. In 2021, for example, 20% of the graduating class from Shrewsbury School (UK) gained places at ‘World Top 20’ universities such as UCL, Imperial, Oxford, Cambridge and Edinburgh (UK).House competitions provide pupils with opportunities to compete, lose or win together!

Shrewsbury International School Phnom Penh has the same ambitions; the best preparation is simply being a pupil and fully engaging with learning and wider-life at the school, but, a dedicated and experienced University Guidance Counselling team will ensure each Sixth Form pupil presents the best version of themselves to prospective university admissions teams.
