More than just a school - A community where individuals matter

Moor Park is a co-educational, boarding and day school accepting children from 3 months to 13 years of age.

Children often start in the Tick Tock Nursery, which provides a secure, nurturing and fun environment for our very youngest children. They transfer to the Pre-Prep Nursery and Kindergarten in the term that they turn 3. Children are then carefully prepared to start more formal schooling by a team of well-qualified and caring staff. Our Early Years provision was graded as Outstanding in All Areas by ISI in 2016.

Our children are prepared mentally, emotionally and physically to move on with confidence to the full range of schools nationally. Eton, Harrow, Cheltenham Ladies' College and Radley, as well as the more local schools such as Shrewsbury School and Moreton Hall, are regular destinations and children also develop the independence they will need to succeed in a rapidly changing world whilst making full use of the 85 acres of beautiful grounds. An impressive proportion of our leavers win scholarships in a variety of disciplines. These include academic and extra- curricular awards to some of the top senior schools in the country.

It is also worth saying that Moor Park is a school where children of all abilities thrive and where children are treated as unique individuals. All of this is underpinned by a culture of kindness founded on Catholic principles, which ensures that all children are valued for who they are. Passionate teachers and an average class size of around 14 also make a difference.

Not every child can be good at everything but every child can be good at something and finding something for every child is something that we take seriously. Moor Park's facilities and, more importantly, enthusiastic and dedicated staff ensure that the school is well placed to get the best out of every child.
