Blue skies and the stunning colours of Autumn provided the perfect backdrop to Moreton Hall’s latest Senior School Open day this weekend.

Set amidst the stunning countryside of rural Shropshire, Moreton Hall welcomed prospective students from as far afield as London and the North West all seeking to find out what makes the school, one of Britain’s top Independent Girls’ schools.

With building underway on the £1.45 million new Holroyd Community Arts Theatre and the state of the art Centenary Science Centre hosting a workshop for aspiring young Vets, as well as regular Saturday school activities underway there were plenty of opportunities for visitors to experience the Moreton magic. Lacrosse matches on the impressive sports fields reminded visitors that for the 21st century student, school is about both work and play.

In his welcome address Principal Jonathan Forster talked about the school’s values and ethos: “Our aim is quite simple, to enable students to reach their potential, whether that is achieving a place at Oxbridge, representing their country at Lacrosse or utilising the skills honed in Moreton Enterprises to run their own company.”

Moreton Hall is a forward-looking school attracting students from all over the world, with its strong reputation for sporting excellence and academic success. The exceptional pastoral care, detailed knowledge of individual students and unlimited extra support and help are some of the key factors in explaining the school’s remarkable success in public examinations across GCSEs and A Level.

Mrs Caroline Lang, Senior Tutor and Sixth Form Registrar at Moreton Hall said, “It has been wonderful to meet so many young women from near and far who are not only considering Moreton Hall for their future but who in joining Moreton Sixth will help shape ours. Our tailored provision will ensure each student leaves us ready for her next steps into adulthood.”

Moreton Hall will be holding a Sixth Form Information Evening on Thursday 11th October at 6pm for further information on its post 16 courses. To register please contact Mrs Caroline Lang on 01691 773671.
