    Moreton Hall, one of the UK’s leading independent boarding and day schools, located in beautiful Shropshire, was recently named Tes Boarding School of the Year 2021. “Moreton wowed the judges with its commitment to its students and the wider community, exemplifying the best of the boarding sector and managing the difficulties of the pandemic with aplomb,” said the Tes Judges.

    Moreton is an ambitious, joyous and nurturing school where all pursuits are equally weighted and Moretonians progress into a diverse range of academic pursuits at the nation’s top universities and arts institutes. At the heart of the school’s success are their exceptional teachers and pastoral staff, who are dedicated to the pupils, challenging and supporting each individual child to reach their personal best.

    Guided by 100 years of teaching excellence, Moreton, in some ways,  operates more like a start-up company than a traditional boarding school. We continually evolve and innovate to create meaningful opportunities for our pupils. Our extensive co-curricular programme is agile to today’s discourse and provides each pupil with choices tailored to their interests and abilities.

    Located near the English-Welsh border near Oswestry, Moreton Hall benefits from 100 acres of rolling green hills, wide open views and excellent facilities. The school’s academic and sporting facilities include everything you would expect from a top-rated independent school, as well as a few that you wouldn’t,  such as a small farm, 9-hole golf course, 25 metre heated indoor swimming pool, professional theatre and an amphitheatre.

    Moreton Hall is a through school, with a nursery, prep school, senior school and sixth form.  Girls and boys join us at three years old, with boys leaving after Year 8 to join the senior school of their choice and girls continuing through Sixth Form.  At Senior School we are predominantly a boarding school with day students being fully integrated into the school, and the option of flexi-boarding.
