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 almost uniquely placed to provide exactly that.
Moor Park children routinely transfer to an extremely wide range of schools, including some of the very finest in the country.
Pupils are given every opportunity to fulfil their potential in the classroom, at whatever level. The school is proud of its record of success in senior school entrance tests and scholarship.
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 there is a lot of at Moor Park!
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.
Moor Park staff pride themselves on really knowing individual children from three months of age, right the way through to 13 years, 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 at the school and its flexible approach to boarding suits many families; it is also huge fun. Happy children are more likely to learn and develop and pastoral care is taken personally.
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. Parents should feel part of a school community and they say it is fun to be a Moor Park parent too!
