Welcome to Moorland
“Welcome to our Moorland Family, and to our website.”
This website has been created to give parents and carers a brief synopsis, ‘flavour’ of the offerings and facilities that are available to our pupils.
Please note that various school prospectuses can be viewed within the Moorland website, or alternatively hard copies can be requested via our Admissions Manager, Mr Carl Lightbown.
“Our ethos at Moorland School is to create a caring; nurturing; warm; and family atmosphere, where all children and young adults can achieve their true academic and social potentials in confidence.
This atmosphere is created and supported by selecting students based upon their behaviour, as we believe through our experiences that small class sizes; excellent behaviour, and patient; dedicated and caring teachers and support staff, combined with parental support creates the perfect partnership and recipe for success”
Moorland School was established as a coeducational day and boarding school nearly 100 years ago, and has been considered as one of the leading schools within the UK, and our academic results both at GCSE; BTEC and at A-Level, places Moorland School within the top 1% of all British academic institutions, 100% A* to B at A-Level in 2016.
Moorland School is a highly competitive and commercially realistic organisation, where pupils are taught traditionally to become decent; hardworking; respectful; pleasant and caring individuals, in preparation for the demands of adult and working lives.
Mr Harrison was himself once a pupil at Moorland School, and the vast majority of our parents have his direct mobile phone number; and he can be contacted outside of school hours; weekends and during school closures, and many parents feel comfortable calling him Jonathan.
“My job is very simple, I am the extension of your family, the caretaker. My responsibility is to ensure that your children are happy; confident; well educated and socially prepared for the demands of adult life. I work in partnership with you to achieve the very best outcomes for our children, and my team and I work tirelessly hard to meet parental expectations, thus ensuring confidences and relationships are maintained.”
