An independent prep school in Shrewsbury is celebrating after no less than 26 pupils achieved 13+ scholarships at a number of high profile secondary schools and colleges.
The youngsters from Prestfelde School impressed across a range of academic, music, art and sporting scholarships, winning places at Shrewsbury School, Moreton Hall, Malvern College, Concord College, Oakham School and Wrekin College.
Head of Prestfelde, Fiona Orchard, led the congratulations to the children on a fantastic set of results.
“We are so pleased for the children because they worked so hard, these results are very much deserved,” she said.
“Working towards a scholarship is a lot of extra commitment on top of their schoolwork and we are delighted that so many have made it to their chosen schools.
“We are always careful not to put undue pressure on the pupils applying for scholarships, and it has been so pleasing to see how they have taken responsibility for their own learning to achieve success.
“A huge well done to all of them!”
