Since 1949, the school has formed part of the Woodard Schools group, founded by the Christian educationalist the Reverend Nathaniel Woodard and as such is affiliated to the largest group of Church of England schools in the country. Originally a school for boys, it diversified during the late 1990s and now also accepts girls.
The school is set in 30 acres (120,000 m2) of grounds on the outskirts of Shrewsbury, close to the Lord Hill column.
