Sundorne Education Centre is provision for Key Stage 3/4 children in North Shropshire. The centre is located on the outskirts of Shrewsbury.

We take students from all of areas who have been struggling in a mainstream school environment. In Sundorne Education Centre we offer small classes with well-trained teachers to help students reach their potential.  With our KS3 pupils, our aim is to move the students on to full time permanent placements in schools that will best work for the individual student.
