Muddy knees and flushed cheeks, a stick in hand and pockets bulging with natural treasures. 85 acres of Shropshire countryside in which to find adventure and joy, shared with wild deer and squirrels, with buzzards and kites on overwatch and minibeasts under the rocks.

Welcome to Moor Park, a co-educational boarding and day school for children from 3 months to 13 years of age. A school that still believes in the magic of childhood.

From their first day in our nursery, Moor Park children embrace the outdoors and learn through play and discovery, with freedom to roam and explore, create and imagine. It is in this way that children can safely, happily and wholeheartedly be themselves.

We are also ambitious. Excellent academic standards, high grades and entrance to the finest senior schools are, however, by-products of a well-rounded education. At Moor Park, we aim to develop innate curiosity, an interest in all aspects of the world, the inculcation of life-skills and mastery of a range of subjects - all whilst retaining the impishness of childhood. Perhaps it is because our focus is so much on the child as an inquisitive being, one who seizes opportunities and lives life with passion, that our scholarship success rate is so high and that our children are in such demand by the very best schools.

It could also be that as a non-selective school we recognise children as individuals and help them find what they love to do. Not every child can be good at everything, but every child can be good at something and finding something for every child is what we take seriously. Moor Park's space, spirit and opportunity for exploration, combined with a happy staff who love what they do, ensure that our school is well placed to get the best out of every child.
