Moreton First is Moreton’s own prep school of almost 200 girls and boys. At the age of 11 boys move on to other senior schools. 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.
The new Centenary Science Centre and Medical Science Faculty enables the increasing number of girls who study Science at A Level – currently more than 50% – to develop their skills and talents in facilities of the highest quality. The environmentally-friendly building capitalises on Moretons exceptional record in biological and environmental studies. The Enrichment Programme is available to every girl in the school. Designed to challenge and stretch it includes the Biomedical and STEM Training Programme, Accelerated Oxbridge Programme and an Academic Programme for engineers, mathematicians, science and medicine and thinking skills. It aims to quench intellectual curiosity and prepares those girls applying to the most competitive Universities.
We have outstanding music facilities and an Indoor theatre and outdoor amphitheatre. As the world of technology evolves, we are constantly investigating ways that will allow us to be at the forefront of the use of ICT in teaching and learning. The generous ICT provision is integral to the teaching, learning and leisure time at Moreton. The two ICT suites, the library and the boarding house computers are accessible through the working day, in the evenings and weekends and the study bedrooms of the older students have internet access points.
Excellent sports facilities include a 25m heated indoor swimming pool, floodlit all-weather playing surface, Tennis and netball courts, 9 hole golf course, Sports hall (with viewing gallery), Fully equipped fitness suite and Lacrosse and hockey pitches. Athletes have access to Queensway Athletics Stadium in Wrexham. There is a great variety of additional sports on offer which include: Badminton, Basketball, Football, Aerobics, Pilates, Zumba, Volleyball, Cricket, Canoeing/Kayaking, Sailing, Fencing, Table Tennis, and Riding.
Learning Support is an important aspect of Moreton Hall. Pupils are generally taught on an individual basis but can also be taught in pairs or in small groups. As well as supporting pupils who have specific learning differences such as dyslexia and dyspraxia, we support all pupils in the school who need help, whatever their age or level of ability.
Moreton Hall is predominately a boarding school. At the age of 11 about 60% of pupils are full boarders and this rises to 80% at 13 years of age and over 90% in Moreton Sixth. There are six boarding houses offering a combination of single, twin, double and multi bedded rooms. We offer both en-suite and dormitory style living.
