Learn about our school

Dear prospective parents and students. Welcome to our school.

Choosing a secondary school is one of the most important decisions a family can make. Read our new 2021 USH Guidebook to get a sense of Upper Shirley High.


We were sorry we had to cancel our much-loved Saturday Open Morning last week. We recognise families will be disappointed that you haven’t had the opportunity to come into our school and meet our people directly.

So, for those families who know us already, or those still deciding, we have prepared a special film for you to watch at home. After you’ve watched it, we are confident you will have a strong sense of who we are and what we do.

We encourage all new prospective parents and children to also watch our 2020 Virtual Open Morning film, our Virtual Tour along with our selected Subject Postcards.
