Welcome to the Packwood website. Packwood is a co-educational, day and boarding prep school for children aged 4-13 years old. Set in 65 acres of beautiful Shropshire countryside, but only just over an hour from Manchester and Birmingham, our amazing site and facilities make Packwood a truly special place for children to grow and develop, whilst enjoying an extended childhood.
Packwood has a national and international reputation for academic strength combined with a focus on all-round education in a genuinely caring environment. Small class sizes and dedicated, specialist teachers help to ensure that every child makes the very best academic progress.
Our co-curricular programme plays a central role in school life. All pupils enjoy lessons in the creative and performing arts every week as well as playing sport almost every day. We encourage all of our pupils to discover new passions and talents as well as further develop their existing strengths.
A key feature of life at Packwood is the welcoming and genuinely caring atmosphere in the school. All pupils, whether boarders or day pupils, benefit from the close-knit community – it is so much more than a school with many staff and pupils calling Packwood home.
