School to host Cotswolds reception

One of the countrys leading public schools is to hold a reception in the Cotswolds in March.

Shrewsbury School, whose old boys include Charles Darwin and Michael Palin, will be hosting the event for parents and prospective parents, as well as prep school heads from the region, on Thursday, March 7 at 6.30pm.

The reception will take place at Marston Meysey Manor, near Swindon, by kind permission of Mrs Camilla Flach.

Headmaster of Shrewsbury School Mark Turner said that the event would provide him with an opportunity to meet as many families from the Cotswolds as possible and bring them up to date with recent developments at Shrewsbury.

The head teachers of several local preparatory schools, including Cothill and Pinewood, will also be attending.

The evening will begin and end informally with drinks and canaps; in between there will be a presentation about the school when Mr Turner will speak about plans for the future, which include the introduction of girls to the third form in 2014.

Anyone interested in attending the reception should contact Nicola Bevan on 01743 280521 or nbevan@shrewsbury.org.uk
