Moreton First Welcome

Moreton First is the preparatory school of Moreton Hall, sharing not only its extensive facilities but also a commitment to nurture and celebrate the talents of each child.

We are proud that we offer boys and girls a unique start to their education, ensuring academic rigour goes hand in hand with encouragement to achieve success in all creative and sporting fields. 

By combining the best of traditional educational methods with exciting initiatives we have created a distinctive school where pupils are active participants in the adventure of their education.

We believe the goal of education must be to develop individual character whilst cultivating a community where respect and consideration are paramount. 

A prospectus can provide only a glimpse of the wealth of opportunities that await children at Moreton First and so I warmly invite you to visit us. Please come and meet our enthusiastic, dedicated staff and the cheerful, motivated pupils of Moreton First.
