About Belvidere School

Belvidere School serves the local community on the East side of Shrewsbury, County Town of Shropshire. We have a truly comprehensive intake, and almost all of our students walk to school. There are approximately 830 students on roll.

Belvidere School is situated in the historic town of Shrewsbury, in the beautiful county of Shropshire, a short distance from the Welsh border, but with excellent motorway and rail links to the West Midlands and beyond.

We are very much a school of choice with local parents, and the school has been oversubscribed for many years.
