The central ethos of the college is that all students should
make outstanding progress and ultimately progress to higher
education or employment. The college is student centred and all
students are valued as unique and special individuals.
The college was formed on 1 August 2016 from the merger of
the two incorporated colleges in the town, Shrewsbury Sixth From
College and Shrewsbury College of Arts & Technology. The
merger was endorsed by the Marches and Worcestershire Area Review
which was published in November 2016. Shrewsbury College of Arts
and Technology Corporation dissolved and transferred all its
assets to Shrewsbury Sixth Form College. The newly formed
Shrewsbury Colleges Group is therefore a designated sixth form
college and is the largest sixth form college in the country as
measured by turnover.
