Adcote School occupies a splendid Grade I listed building surrounded by parkland and has been helping girls achieve their goals since 1907.

New headmistress Diane Browne is a leading light in single-sex education and is passionate about empowering girls through leadership and management from an early age.
All Year 12 students complete compulsory training with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI Level 2 Award in Leadership and Management) – it is the only school in Shropshire to offer such an award. With two girls currently beginning studies at Oxbridge and one in three going off to Russell Group universities, Adcote girls are geared to aim high and achieve their ambitions.

Adcote is also known for its colourful range of clubs, with 60 different activities on offer! Some clubs deepen enthusiasm for learning, such as the Economics club, Product Design, STEM Club, French and German conversation, Biology, Physics Clinics, Law Society, Debating and
Creative Writing, whilst others promote relaxation and physical activity. The school newspaper Adcotians was shortlisted for the national Shine media award.

Girls can also choose from the likes of: Sixth Form Self Defence, Creative Sewing, Patchwork Club, English Tea Club, Netball, Hockey, Fencing, Fitness, Horse Riding, Wayfarers (leadership & outdoors), CCF, Rotary and other charity ventures. 

Adcote allows girls to flourish in a single-sex environment where they make lifelong friendships with other girls, and where they learn to lead without unfair competition or distraction from boys. The school is defined by its single-sex status. Being an all girls’ school is fundamental to its identity.  As well as striving for academic excellence the school places great emphasis on politeness, manners and the smart appearance of its pupils. Many parents who have chosen Adcote comment on its welcoming atmosphere and well-behaved and motivated pupils.
