Moreton Hall (Girls)
Who will it suit?
Parents and students looking for a traditionally British education as only 10% of the 270 boarders are from international destinations. A further 10% of the school population are day pupils. The school runs an International Study Centre on the same site, offering preparation courses for GCSE and A-Level candidates, as well as induction courses for their parents.
Most move on to top UK universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. In addition to those pursuing the sciences, a strong business-orientation is encouraged with an Enterprise Centre run by the girls, reaching commercial standards. Watch out for women in top positions putting Moreton Hall alumni on their CV.
Care is taken to ensure that candidates quickly lift their academic studies to the appropriate level – they need to be able to demonstrate an ability to cope well with the English language and academic work. For those who require more assistance, the co-ed International Study Centre is recommended. Girls can join academic classes from the Study Centre and the boys there are helped to prepare for other UK schools. The plan is shortly to double capacity to over 40 pupils.
The only all-girls school in the ASIS Federation, Moreton Hall regularly achieves league-table positions in the top 50 of all UK schools. Its Headmaster is a strong advocate of single-sex education and the school recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, one of the few remaining all-girls UK schools to do so. Around 60% of the girls at A-level, study the sciences. Considerable investment on their glorious country site has provided them with outstanding study facilities.
