About us

William Brookes School in Much Wenlock

With over 960 students on the roll, William Brookes School is a successful school situated in the picturesque town of Much Wenlock. Approximately ten miles from the centre of Shrewsbury, the School serves a community of small villages and the bigger town of Broseley.

Academic standards at the school are high and frequently among the highest in the county, thanks to highly motivated staff, children who wish to learn and parents who support them.

Our high standards are maintained by caring and creating a climate of trust and mutual support between all who work in the school, ensuring all students leave with qualifications and skills needed for a successful life.

The school underwent a complete rebuild in 2010 making it the only school in Shropshire to have a building fully equipped for 21st century learning, although we continually look to improve our excellent facilities and resources for learning. We also have a large Leisure Centre, swimming pool and 3G pitch, which are jointly managed and available for use by students and staff during the day.

We have a specialism in the Performing Arts and have excellent facilities inside the Edge Arts centre for public and school performances. These include a Dance and Drama studio, a Lecture Theatre and Cinema alongside the main Performance studio.

Coubertin School Status

We have the privilege of being the only Coubertin School in Great Britain. We were awarded this prestigious status in 1999 when we were asked to become a founder member because of our strong links with the modern Olympics. Find out more...
