CHOOSING EDUCATIONAL STABILITY

EDUCATION
FOR MILITARY
CHILDREN

We have welcomed children from Military families through our doors for over ten years. Even when home life becomes interrupted, we provide children with a stable and consistent learning environment.

A Stable consistent learning environment

Children can live and grow as part of our boarding family

Moving home often or relocating and changing a child’s school can have a detrimental effect on their learning journey, causing unnecessary disruption and difficulties. Considering a Boarding School can often provide an option for stability and deliver a consistent learning environment.

 

The MOD also helps to overcome this disruption, by funding an allowance (CEA). This allowance contributes to 90% of boarding school fees. This allows your family to move together but for the child to have a continuous education in a familiar location from the age of 8.

 

When selecting Moorland, we ensure your child feels like they are in a home away from home and are welcomed into our warm family environment. We have successfully nurtured generations of children from military families, acknowledging  the challenges that families face, striving to help families overcome them in the most comfortable and academically positive way possible.

CEA ALLOWANCE

We are an affordable boarding school option for Military personnel within the UK and abroad. The MOD will fund 90% of your child’s school fees. We are highly experienced, and can help to advise families in regards to the completion of documentation for the application for CEA allowance in accordance with the Pay and Allowance Casework Cell.

 

If you would like to know more about sending your child to a Military approved Boarding school, please refer to the links below for further support and guidance, you can also refer to the JPA or contact our Admissions team for advice with the CEA process.

As a well established, Military approved, boarding school we fully understand the challenges that a serving forces family can face, this is why here at Moorland are aware of these challenges and provide the highest level of support, emotional comfort and reassurance.

 

Situated in the picturesque Ribble Valley, Moorland has close transport links to neighbouring cities such as Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds with local airports no further than 50 Miles away. This location provides an idyllic landscape for children to grow up in.

OVERSEAS TRAVEL

Our team at Moorland are familiar with a large amount of overseas bases with current children from families located all over the world. This familiarity makes traveling home a smooth process for all families. We regularly provide transport to and from airports. Children are then chaperoned to their flight and our dedicated staff team do not leave the airport until the flight leaves.

 

As Military Dependents children are entitled to three free flights per year to the designated military base or travel expenses can be claimed back through JPA if you are based more than a ninety-mile travel distance away.

Achieving Academic Excellence

An enjoyable learning journey & boarding care

Life at Moorland School is structured so that children find a balance of routine and relaxation whilst maintaining a strong education and home life balance. Traditional lessons during term time start from 9AM till 4PM, our boarders then take part in guided study of an evening. This guided study allows for the students to gain extra help and support when completing homework or to address any areas they require help with to further their studies. We ensure guided study takes place, understanding that children need encouragement and guidance when it comes to independent study. Boarding students also take part in guided study on a Saturday to ensure that any outstanding homework has been completed before weekend activities commence. Parents evenings and educational reviews can be completed virtually, meaning you can always be updated and aware of your child’s progress at school; something we feel is extremely important when it comes to choosing a boarding school.

 

As our children board together in their year groups it makes learning together much easier. Children gain support from their peers in the boarding house and often revise for exams together and support one another in areas of opportunity. This unique experience for children is truly like no other; living and learning with your friends under the watchful eye of our houseparents. When boarding, our houseparents apply patience, understanding, common sense and humour as they deal with the daily routine of boarding life. They read bedtime stories and play games with younger students; they apply firm but friendly persuasion when a bedroom needs tidying up; they understand when things are not going well and how to work with the children to turn their goals into achievements. Our houseparents deliver experience and dedication when helping our children.

Football & Ballet Opportunities

Assessment & opportunities for academy development

With two academies at Moorland School, our students have the opportunity to be assessed for either/both of our Football and Ballet Academies at no additional costs. Both our Football and Ballet academy are world renowned developing many talented individuals who go on to have successful professional careers.

 

Being assessed from a young age provides children with an opportunity that they wouldn’t receive at any other boarding school. Joining an academy provides children with extracurricular activities to enhance their skills and learning. Whilst giving them the chance to develop a possibly undiscovered talent that could lead to future career possibilities in professional arts or sport.

 

Both of our academies are lead by current or ex-professional coaches in their respective fields, delivering comprehensive learning in the study of choice. Our International Football Academy is lead by world-renowned coach, Charlie Jackson. Producing over 30 signed academy players to a variety of professional clubs, including Manchester United, Manchester City and Blackburn Rovers among others! The International Ballet Academy operates under the watchful eye of Co-Directors Lynsey and Simon Kidd, with some of their past students going on to perform as professionals for The Royal Ballet company, San Diego Ballet company and many more internationally renowned dance institutions.
