Packwood Haugh School is an independent coeducational day and boarding preparatory school near Ruyton-XI-Towns, mid-way between Oswestry and Shewsbury in Shropshire, England. It takes children between the ages of four and thirteen, and there are currently about 270 at the school, of whom half are boarders.Iles, D. "et al.", "Packwood Haugh School: Independent Schools Inspectorate Report" dated March 2006]

The school was founded in 1892 at Packwood in Warwickshire and moved to its present site, a large Victorian country house set in sixty acres, in 1941. In 1956, it became a charitable trust. A pre-preparatory department, Packwood Acorns, was established in 1993 for day children only aged between four and seven.

A new boarding house for girls has been added, and a new theatre was opened in 2003.
