Moreton Hall is widely recognised as one of the leading independent girls' boarding and day schools in the UK. Although not highly academically selective, securing a place is increasingly competitive. Places are awarded usually by entrance examination, interview and reference from the previous school. 

However, our overriding aim is to attract highly motivated students who will benefit from the wide range of opportunities we can offer. Normal entry points to the senior school are at 11+, 13+ and 16+, but occasionally girls join us at other times.

The process may vary by family and according to circumstances, but in general, the steps are as follows: 

  • Visit school if possible 1 to 2 years prior to entry
  • Register as soon as possible
  • Sit Entrance/Scholarship examination in the January prior to entry (November for Sixth Form)
  • Offers made by school in the February prior to entry
  • Acceptance required with deposit by Easter
  • 11+ and 13+ Information Day in the June prior to entry
  • Sixth Form induction weekend after GCSEs (late June)
  • Students start at school September  

Please note that any student wishing to apply at the age of 11 (Year 6) for a deferred entry place at 13 (Year 9) will be invited to sit the entrance exams in the January of Year 6.

The best way to get a feel for the school, its students and its staff is to come and visit us. We encourage all families who have any potential interest in the school to come and meet George Budd, the Principal and to take a tour of the school with current students. Students are always welcome to come for a taster day (and night, if they wish) at a time that suits.

After Entrance Exams

Offers will be made in writing in mid-February. Scholarships will be awarded at a similar time.  A deposit of £500 for Moreton First or £1000 for the Senior School is required to confirm the place. This sum will be held until the student completes their education at Moreton and will be refunded on the final account or may be donated to the Moreton Foundation at that time, if you wish.

Parents and daughters will then be invited to an induction day in June (for those entering years 7-9).

We hold a Sixth Form Induction weekend in June for those entering Sixth Form.
