Set in the heart of the picturesque Ribble Valley, Moorland Senior School offers a bespoke, tailored learning experience for children in Year 7 up to those in Year 11 who are completing their all-important GCSE examinations.

Academic Excellence & Personal Development

At Moorland Seniors, we are passionate about fostering an environment to ensure a successful social, emotional, and academic journey for your child.

Our secondary educators consist of a blend of qualified teachers, specialised coaches, and ballet instructors, offering an unparalleled learning environment within the region.

Senior Admissions

With average class sizes between 14 and 16 (capped much lower than other independent schools in the area), we are able to provide more teacher and pupil engagement, allowing teachers to more effectively monitor the class and provide feedback on learning. This also reduces behavioural distractions that are present in mainstream schools, further enhancing the learning environment.

Children are also able to take advantage of our excellent facilities, which includes our training pitch here at Moorland School, that sits alongside our indoor 4G sports centre.

Located in a national beauty spot and picturesque surroundings throughout the year, we aim to make the most of this in our teaching, enriching the health and well-being of our students and further enhancing the curriculum.

Academic excellence is a key part of our mission, and we also strive to ensure all children develop strong self-esteem and build their confidence through positive, constructive criticism and by developing strong relationships with peers.

Convenience & Flexibility for Parents & Pupils

We understand just how challenging managing your child’s education can be, that is why we offer flexible school hours and an extensive transport network across the Ribble Valley and beyond.

Moorland Seniors opens its doors at 8 am and remains open until 6.30 pm, allowing busy parents to avoid unnecessary childcare and providing maximum convenience.

Our transport network consists of a fleet of 8 buses that offer door-to-door travel for all pupils, providing them with a secure and convenient journey to and from school. All drivers are hired by the School and operate within the Ribble Valley and beyond including coverage of local towns such as Accrington, Burnley, Blackburn, Bolton, Preston, Skipton and Colne.

Catering for Excellence

We understand that a child’s diet is essential for optimum growth and development, hence why Moorland takes catering extremely seriously and aim to provide a well-balanced and enjoyable variety of high-quality dishes.

All meals are served fresh and are carefully crafted in-house by our experienced and fully qualified chefs. This also means we are able to tailor meals on an individual basis and we send our menus to parents out regularly for review and feedback, enabling you to see exactly what food your child is provided with for added reassurance. Essentially, we know that a daily diet and food intake is fuel for the body and mind, and is why we place such importance on this matter.
