Founded in 1898, Moorlands School is dedicated to providing a first class education for girls & boys aged 2 to 11 years in a warm, friendly environment.
The school is conveniently located off the Ring Road at Weetwood Lane, yet sat in beautiful grounds providing all the outdoor space (and off road parking) required for children to play in a safe and secure environment. The school boasts of fantastic wrap round care facilities, excellent teaching standards, on site swimming pool and small class sizes.
Alongside an academically rigorous curriculum, Moorlands recognises that children have different interests and strengths and, as such, aims to provide opportunities for all pupils, whether they enjoy academic life, sport, art, ICT, music or drama. Whilst our expectations are high, Moorlands is still very much a school where children can be children.
This approach, with the dedication of a talented staff, has led to children from Moorlands being successfully accepted to their choice of senior schools. We take pride in our track record of successfully preparing our pupils for entry not only to the region’s but the UK’s leading independent day and boarding schools. Many of our pupils excel in entrance examinations and receive scholarships to their chosen destinations.
The school has a traditional past and an exciting future, with a full development plan in place to enhance the facilities further throughout 2014 .
Please come and see for yourself, our pupils would love to show you round …
“The school has transformed our son, he is now full of confidence and enthusiasm for all aspects of school life. There is not just an academic focus but a focus on developing behaviours and interests as well” (parent, May 2013)
