Affiliated to the famous Shrewsbury School in the United Kingdom, Shrewsbury Guangzhou is the first “Great Nine” British international school to open in Guangzhou’s Nansha District. Founded through Royal Charter in 1552, Shrewsbury School has a proud tradition of nearly 500 years. One of the UK’s famous and historic schools, Shrewsbury boasts a rich cultural heritage and a dynamic future.

In 2003, Shrewsbury International School Bangkok was opened as Shrewsbury’s first international campus. Shrewsbury Bangkok has established itself as Thailand’s leading international school, with a proud track record of graduating students thriving at top universities in the UK, the US and around the world.

The Shrewsbury success story led to plans to expand in East Asia.

Shrewsbury Guangzhou is the fourth school, fulfilling the mission of SIA to create distinctive centres of educational excellence. We invite you to join us.
