If, before your visit, you're keen to find out more about the North West's leading day and boarding co-educational school for girls and boys aged 7 - 18 years, you are welcome to take a Virtual Tour of the College and explore it from your home - see below!

Take the Ellesmere College 'Virtual Tour'!

Here at Ellesmere College we are understandably proud of our majestic and historic campus set in 150 acres of beautiful Shropshire countryside, and if you are unable to join us in person, we have endeavoured to bring the College to you via our 'Virtual Tours'!

The 'Virtual Tour' is just one of the first steps in understanding the College and navigating the key areas of school, but meeting with key staff face to face is a further layer of the visit and we are keen to continue with that through virtual Zoom or Skype calls.

The 'Virtual Tour' is a self guided tour that provides you with a flexible alternative to a visit in person from wherever you are in the world - giving you a full 360o tour of some key areas of the school - from classrooms to boarding houses, Tennis Centre to the Arts Studio and some of the grounds. All it takes is a click to explore and experience these areas and get a sense of the nurturing and enabling environment that we are creating for students at the College.

Navigating the Tour!

To navigate your way around the College please click the link below, and move your mouse over each circle of choice and click - it will then transport you to that area to have a look around! To leave that area, look around the room for the next circle or to go back to the main home page:

We hope you enjoy our 'Virtual Tour' and we look forward to welcoming you in person, once we are fully open again; in the typical workings of Ellesmere life - every day is an Open Day!
