Principal's Welcome

You may have preconceptions about what a traditional boarding school education is like – but Moreton Hall is a school like no other.

From the moment you enter the 100 acres of school grounds, you can embrace the ‘Moreton Magic’ and discover the infectious positivity and energy which is threaded through the classrooms, across the sports pitches and onto the stage.

Moreton is not a cookie-cutter sort of school; there is no typical Moretonian, everyone finds their own place here - what binds is a strong set of shared values. As a forward-looking school, Moreton is unencumbered by petty rules. The students are encouraged to take responsibility for themselves and develop skills such as public speaking and entrepreneurship during their time with us. Our students are self-confident and self-reliant without being arrogant, they are generous with their support of each other and of the community and their imagination knows no bounds - you need look no further than The Circus to see what I mean by this. As a result, our students achieve exceptional public examination results and gain entry to the world’s top universities.

Don’t just take my word for it though – Moreton Hall was recently judged in the top category by ISI in a recent school inspection, our U14 lacrosse team are national champions and our Senior team are in the top 8 in the country. Students go on to represent their country in a range of sports, enjoy success in their music examinations with distinctions galore and the progress they make with their academic studies places us towards the top in national value-added rankings.

I hope our website gives you a flavour of the diverse and vibrant life here; although of course, the best way to truly understand any school is to visit us and speak to the students and staff themselves. Choosing the right school for your child is a hard decision and so we look forward to welcoming you in the future and talking about how a bespoke Moreton education could benefit your son or daughter. 

This is truly a remarkable place and I look forward to meeting you when you visit.
