Moreton Hall has been named as one of The Telegraph’s ‘Top Movers’ following outstanding A-level and GCSE results. This impressive accolade followed another vintage year of A-level results for the school and certainly sets the tone for the year to come.
As one of the country’s leading independent schools, Moreton Hall has risen over 100 places to be positioned in the top 100 schools for 2017 A-level results. Pupils achieved an impressive haul of top grades across the board. Fifty-three per cent of grades were awarded A* or A with a third of candidates achieving straight A* or A grades in all their subjects.
Similarly, GCSE results exceeded all expectations, as nearly 92 per cent of entries were awarded grades A*-C.
Moreton Hall ensures a bespoke educational experience – allowing acceleration or extra support as required – at no extra cost. Exceptional pastoral care, detailed knowledge of individual students and unlimited extra support and help are undoubtedly key factors in explaining the school’s remarkable success in public examinations.
Principal, Jonathan Forster, pays tribute to the quality of teaching and learning which have long been the hallmark of the school.
He says: “We have exceptional teachers and outstanding students, both of whom are prepared to go the extra mile. Our aim is quite simple, to enable students to reach their potential, whether that is achieving a place at Oxbridge, representing their country at lacrosse or utilising the skills honed in Moreton Enterprises to run their own company.”
Moreton Enterprises is run by Lower Sixth students from a self-funded, purpose built ‘Enterprise Centre’ and boasts an annual turnover of £50,000. The aim of it is to inspire young women and challenge them by nurturing a culture of enterprise within the heart of the school.
The school also has a reputation for sporting excellence. Professional sports coaches enable elite athletes to perform at national and international level. Students excel in lacrosse – the 1st and U14 teams finished in the top 16 schools in the UK in the National Schools Lacrosse Tournament. Seven girls have been selected for the England Regional Lacrosse Academy and Welsh squad, and Moreton’s U15 cricket team enjoyed deserved success, finishing fourth in the finals of the Lady Taverners, Lord’s.
Current Head Prefect, Lara Tapp, says: “As a third generation Moretonian, I feel extremely lucky to be at a school that is so family based. The care from teacher to pupil is unique and the friendships here make Moreton more like a home than a school. I will always treasure my time here.”
