British education is perceived as the gold standard globally. Shrewsbury School delights in playing its part in disseminating it by developing outstanding schools around the world. Our first international school, founded in Bangkok back in 2003, has become the benchmark for quality education in that city. So successful has the venture been that a second campus was established in Bangkok in 2018 to keep up with demand, whilst at the same time opening a new school in Hong Kong.
The school has a distinctive and clearly articulated educational philosophy and ethos that is centred around the ‘Floreat’ concept (Educational Philosophy PDF). Shrewsbury International School Phnom Penh puts ‘Floreat’ and Shrewsbury’s values at the heart of all we do here in Cambodia.
Shrewsbury School (UK) is governed by a group of individuals who have a rich and relevant experience of independent school education and some of these people are also members of the Advisory Board of Governors for Shrewsbury International School Phnom Penh (see HERE for more details).
Pupils at Shrewsbury School (UK) routinely attain strong external qualifications securing competitive offers at universities in the UK and further afield in the world, including impressive entry numbers to Oxford, Cambridge, Russell Group Universities and the Ivy Leagues.
