Our son Tiaan has been at Moorland Juniors since he started in reception. He can’t wait to get to school in the mornings…he loves it and so do His friends. His class is smaller than in any other local school and he has the space to grow in his confidence and ability because of this. His teachers have stimulated his love for maths and he takes pride in the work he does in class.

Moorland creates an environment where children can be children. There is a feel of freedom and exploration. They play and learn outside as part of Forest School and they have the desire to learn, rather than feeling they ‘have to’. Tiaan definitely sees Moorland as an extension of his family and he is a very happy boy.

From the moment our eldest daughter attended her taster sessions at Moorland School, we were all hooked! She felt immediately welcomed by both the pupils and the teaching staff. Fast forward a year and half and she is thriving.

Moorland is honestly like a family, the way the days are constructed to balance the right amount of learning with social and life skills is amazing and every day she can’t wait to go and comes home with a huge smile on her face full of stories about the day – this ranges from what she’s learned academically to the myriad of clubs she can attend. The teaching staff are simply wonderful and they create an amazing atmosphere for the children, which also extends to the parents – they are always willing to answer any questions you have, no matter what these are.

Being a military family, we have moved around a lot at the cost of our children’s education. Being part of the moorland family has seen our child grow from strength to strength not just educationally but personally as well. For the first time she is settled and is enjoying school and making friends that will last a life time.

The decision to send our children to boarding school was not a decision we took lightly, but as each day pasts and we see her grow and enjoy every element of Moorland life, From the unique teaching styles, extra-curricular clubs, evening events in the boarding house and the fun packed weekend trips we know we made the right decision in choosing Moorland School.

Moorland is like a second family to me. They help me make friends for life. The staff especially the teachers and house parents always know when something is wrong and they will do their best to help me.

My four children aged 8, 8, 4 and 3 all attend Moorland School, Preschool and Nursery respectively. When my husband and I visited the school for the first time, we were struck by the affection the children showed to their teachers. The nursery, pre-school and juniors have a warm and easy going atmosphere. The atmosphere the children enjoy is very much a home from home experience. Teachers are empathetic and approachable, friendships are nurtured alongside gentle discipline and children are given appropriate responsibilities and strive to meet their teacher’s expectations of good behaviour. Children’s thoughts and opinions are listened to and respected, and self-directed learning is encouraged. They are not overburdened with homework and an emphasis on learning through play is fostered before age 7.

My children have thrived and blossomed at Moorland, and I doubt I can find another school locally which can match Moorland in terms of facilitating a love for learning and creating that family atmosphere in the classroom.
