Inspiring Young People

The School

Upton Hall School FCJ is a Roman Catholic Grammar School for girls aged 11-18. It is situated in the Diocese of Shrewsbury under the Trusteeship of the Society of the Faithful Companions of Jesus, FCJ. The school has academy status.

We have more than 970 pupils, including 220 members of our flourishing Sixth Form. (We welcome applications from all highly motivated students for places in our Sixth Form.)

Academic excellence is highly valued, with each pupil encouraged to develop her own talents to the best of her ability for her own sake and so that she can help to make the world a better place. As an FCJ school we have a distinctive ethos that shapes all that we do.

Upton was judged by Ofsted to be outstanding school in the full inspection that took place in June 2022.  An inspection of the teaching of RE and the ethos of the school was undertaken by Shrewsbury Diocese in January 2018 which judged Upton to be an outstanding catholic school.

Upton Hall School FCJ has full International School status in recognition of the work undertaken not only by the Languages Faculty but throughout the curriculum to ensure that our pupils have a keen appreciation of the world in which we live with its many opportunities and challenges.  At the same time we encourage pupils to develop an appreciation of their own worth and that of the society in which we live.  All members of the school are encouraged to understand and appreciate what it means to be a British citizen and what it means to be a member of an FCJ community.

We are proud to work with the Prince’s Teaching Institute as part of our commitment to excellence in teaching and learning.
