About Moreton Hall
Located in the town of Oswestry, Shropshire, Moreton Hall is an all-through school with sixth form for pupils between the ages of three and 18. The school was founded in 1913 in an Elizabethan manor house. Boys are accepted to the preparatory school, while the senior school is girls only. Currently there are 485 pupils – 78 boys and 407 girls.
Moreton Hall is owned by a charitable trust and overseen by a board of governors. Girls are able to board on the premises during term time. In 2003 and 2008, two new boarding houses for sixth-form students were built. A swimming pool was also constructed in 2008. In 2013, to celebrate the school's hundred years, a Centenary Science Centre and Medical Science Faculty was opened.
Values and vision
Moreton Hall aims to provide a high standard of education by following a tailored curriculum. It offers a nurturing environment that allows girls to grow and excel, personally and academically. Pupils are able to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities on the school grounds. The principal believes the aim of the school is to “stretch the most able and support the least confident”. Teachers are there to inform and guide students to be lifelong learners.
“The curriculum is supported by an appropriate policy, detailed schemes of work and plans. It provides particular breadth in modern languages. Those with individual needs are identified carefully so that all pupils can learn and make progress. Pupils’ personal development is supported through personal, social, health and citizenship education. This encourages pupils to respect others and listen to their views. Teaching provokes a wide range of activities in class which develop pupils’ understanding.”
