Founded in 1884, Ellesmere College is an independent co-educational UK boarding school based in rural North Shropshire. Success at the college founded upon high quality classroom education coupled with a strong commitment to extra-curricular activities, be they artistic, sporting or outdoor pursuits. Ellesmere offers day, weekly boarding and boarding facilities within a five day teaching cycle with sport and extra-curricular activities at the weekend. Although a Church of England foundation, the College welcomes pupils of all faiths and all nationalities.
There are four boys’ houses and two girls’ houses. House facilities are uniformly good with a study place for every pupil, recreation rooms, ICT provision and even, in one case, a sauna. Communal areas include the Sixth Form Club and Thatcher Study Wing, the school Tuck Shop and the Arts Centre foyer where junior social events are held on a regular basis. In the Lower School pupils are grouped in forms for administration purposes whilst, for all pupils, meals are taken in the Dining Hall on a cafeteria basis.
For the full or weekly boarder there is much to enjoy at Ellesmere College. A programme of activities operates over several evenings and at weekends. Pupils, saved the time taken to ‘commute’, are able to throw themselves enthusiastically into their work, sport, performing arts and extra curricular activities. Boarding at Ellesmere College is very flexible, and is designed to provide the structure that suits each individual best.
