About Moorland School
Founded in the early 1920's, Moorland is a thriving co-educational day and boarding school located in the historic town of Clitheroe within the picturesque Ribble Valley. We have an outstandingly beautiful site with more than 15 acres of grounds that are utilised for many activities and provide a serene learning environment. The main building is an imposing stone-built mansion house that is over 100 years old. Other facilities have been progressively added to the site including a purpose built sports hall and our fabulous new classroom and accommodation block which opened in May 2010.
Thanks to our Nursery, Junior and Senior schools, we are able to offer seamless education from 2 through to 18 years, ensuring consistency of learning and pastoral care while at the same time eliminating the worry and stress that often accompany the transition from primary to secondary and then onto A-Level education. This applies equally to boarders, since Moorland provides pupils with the opportunity to settle in one place through to A-level rather than moving from school to school.
Our enthusiastic teaching staff are committed to their roles as educators, mentors and carers while small class sizes ensure that all our students receive individual attention and support tailored to their needs. Moorland School aims to build well rounded, responsible and hard-working individuals who strive to perform to the best of their abilities.
