It previously held Science College specialist status and was awarded the Sportsmark by the Sports Council. Ofsted rated the school "Good" in 2015, paying special attention to the above average results in Religious Studies, Geography, Drama and Modern Foreign Languages at GCSE level. The school also has Ofsted "Good" ratings in every category.[2] As it does not have a sixth form, students transfer to Shrewsbury Sixth Form College, Shrewsbury College or an independent school. Still, Meole Brace - sometimes abbreviated to MBS - is the largest secondary school within Shrewsbury.
