English (15 hours per week)
All students have 15 hours of English tuition a week with a strong focus on grammar, communication and study skills. Homework sessions are two hours per night. Spoken English is developed through a wide range of activities both inside and outside the classroom. All of our students take English Speaking Board Examinations. In addition IELTS examination preparation is offered in more advanced classes.
Science (6 hours per week)
Science is taught by specialist science teachers with experience in EFL teaching. A combination of theory and practical work gives our students the grounding in the necessary vocabulary to be able to study science alongside British students.
Maths (4 hours per week)
Maths teaching concentrates on the vocabulary needed to study this subject at GCSE and Advanced Level and develops skills which may be new to the students, such as drawing and interpreting graphs.
Business Studies/Economics (2 hours per week)
Many of the students attending Moreton Hall International Study Centre wish to take Business Studies or Economics as an examination subject. The course gives students a thorough grounding in the background and vocabulary needed to begin a Business Studies course at GCSE or Advanced Level or Economics at Advanced Level. These courses also help students decide which of these two is better suited to them.
Sport (1 hour formal Games lesson per week)
Moreton Hall is set in 100 acres of landscaped parkland, where the key sports include lacrosse, hockey, netball, tennis and athletics. The school facilities include a 9 hole golf course, a new indoor heated swimming pool, all-weather sports pitch, 6 tennis courts (14 in summer, 9 floodlit), fitness suite, and sports hall for volleyball, badminton, yoga, dance etc. Horse riding and sailing are also popular. Students are encouraged to participate in these activities.
To add to the learning experience our students are taken on visits to places of cultural and historic interest such as Oxford and Cambridge Universities, London, Chester, Shrewsbury, castles and museums. These visits are used to form part of the learning of English language and appreciation of British culture. Those attending the September, January and April terms are also encouraged to participate in the weekend activity programme of the main school, giving them the chance to socialise and integrate with students from the UK and other countries.
