Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions a family makes. Decisions are based upon a number of factors, including a school’s reputation, its location, its facilities, but most importantly its ‘product’: the pupils in the school.aboutus_gallery_7

Moreton is seen as a forward-looking school where we value academic success and extra-curricular achievement equally. The school is known for being small, friendly and open, not cluttered by petty rules, but with a clear set of values agreed upon and respected by all members of the school community.

Established in 1913 by the Lloyd-Williams family, today Moreton Hall is proud to be one of the UK’s highest achieving independent girls’ schools.

In 2000, Moreton First opened and now along with First Steps Nursery and Transition has become Moreton’s own prep school of almost 200 girls and boys.507301995_1280x720

Adjacent to Moreton’s main site is the International Study Centre, Mitchell House, which prepares a limited number of students from all over the world for entry to 25 different UK boarding schools.

All the Moreton schools share the same value and standards of academic excellence, a tailored curriculum, outstanding pastoral care and extra-curricular activities of an extraordinary range and quality are the cornerstones of the school.

Every pupil is nurtured and encouraged to fulfil their potential – our aim, to stretch the most able and support the least confident, informs and guides all that we do.

Once you have browsed the website and requested a prospectus, come and visit us and find out why Moreton Hall, in the words of the Tatler Good Schools Guide, is such a ‘cracking school – trouncing local and national rivals on all fronts’.

Moreton Hall is widely recognised as one of the leading independent girls’ boarding and day schools in the UK. Although not highly academically selective, securing a place is increasingly competitive. Places are awarded usually by entrance examination, interview and reference from previous school.

However, our overriding aim is to attract highly motivated students who will benefit from the wide range of opportunities we can offer. Normal entry points to the senior school are at 11+, 13+ and 16+, but occasionally girls join us at other times.GirlsDriveLong

The process may vary by family and according to circumstances, but in general the steps are as follows:

  • Visit school if possible 1 to 2 years prior to entry
  • Register as soon as possible
  • Sit Entrance/Scholarship examination in the January prior to entry (November for Sixth Form)
  • Offers made by school in the February prior to entry
  • Acceptance required with deposit by Easter
  • 11+ and 13+ Information Day in the June prior to entry
  • Sixth Form induction weekend after GCSEs (late June)
  • Students start at school September

Please note that any student wishing to apply at the age of 11 (Year 6) for a deferred entry place at 13 (Year 9) will be invited to sit the entrance exams in the January of Year 6.

The best way to get a feel for the school, its students and its staff is to come and visit us. We encourage all families who have any potential interest in the school to come and meet Jonathan Forster, the Principal and to take a tour of the school with current students. Students are always welcome to come for a taster day (and night, if they wish) at a time that suits.
