On return from school holidays the boarding houses are open from 4pm onwards. Should you wish to bring your sons or daughters back earlier than this time, please would you contact Miss Mosscrop (Willows boarders) or Mr Lyon (Oaks boarders) to discuss individual arrangements. Those students returning from overseas and being collected by school transport will return to the boarding house by arrangement with the Boarding Managers and Transport Co-ordinator.


The following links provide you with the necessary details for what school uniform items are required, what boarders should consider bringing and instructions on how to order school uniforms and a link to ordering Moorland Football Academy kit:


The school menu changes each term, although new menu items may be added throughout each term.

Please note that where any menu choice is annotated with (H), this means that there are non-halal and halal options available for this meal.
