An overview of the education opportunities at St Chad’s.

 St Chad’s is a unique late 18th century Georgian church.  It is a key building in the history of Shrewsbury and stands in area rich in Georgian heritage. To achieve its circular design the architect George Steuart used his connections with the Ironmasters of Coalbrookdale to create a metal structure that was at the time at the cutting edge of design and technology.  It has important examples of art and craft as seen in its early wrought ironwork [with an interesting provenance], Victorian stained glass and early Edwardian carving that, along with its external and internal architecture gives pupils and students much to explore, record and research. The chapel makes a strong connection to military history and the contribution of the KSLI in significant campaigns of the last 250 years.
