CHILDREN AT MOOR PARK ARE ENCOURAGED TO THINK INDEPENDENTLY AND CREATIVELY IN AND OUT OF THE CLASSROOM

Moor Park

An education in the fullest sense of the word is one of the most precious things a child can receive.

Moor Park, a co-educational prep school set in 85 stunning acres of Shropshire countryside, is placed to provide exactly that.

A school spokesman said: “Moor Park children routinely transfer to an extremely wide range of schools including some of the very finest in the country.

“There are no glass ceilings set here: Moor Park pupils are given every opportunity to fulfil their potential in the classroom, at whatever level.

“We are proud of our record of success in senior school entrance tests and scholarships.

“However, education is far more than simply preparing for exams.

Encouraging Moor Park children to think independently and creatively in and out of the classroom whilst helping them to avoid a fear of failure is at the heart of the process. 

This also makes learning fun; something we have a lot of here!

“Not every child can be good at everything but every child can be good at something. It is our job to discover something for every pupil. 

We aim to ensure that children’s talents are maximised in whichever area they excel or show an interest. 

“The number of all-rounder, music, art and sporting scholarships which are routinely won by Moor Park pupils speaks volumes but as important to us are those small individual triumphs: a tackle made when it might have been missed the previous week or a first public performance are all celebrated.

Moor Park staff pride themselves on really knowing individual children and in providing a huge range of opportunities for them to discover the interests, skills and passions that are so crucial in building a rounded young person.

“As important are the opportunities to simply enjoy the space with friends: building dens in the woods and other such activities should be part of every childhood.

“Boarding enables many children to make the most of their time here and our flexible approach to boarding suits many families; it is also huge fun.

“Happy children are more likely to learn and develop and we take pastoral care personally; perhaps an extension of knowing individual children well. 

Visitors often comment on the openness and enthusiasm of Moor Park pupils. 

This is a kind school, rooted in Catholic principles but welcoming children and families of all faiths and beliefs.”
