Moreton First, the preparatory school of Moreton Hall, one of the UK’s leading independent schools, is opening its doors on Saturday 2nd February at 10am to prospective students.

Moreton First offers both boys and girls a unique start to their education, from First Steps Nursery through to eleven years of age and ensures academic rigour goes hand in hand with encouragement to achieve success in all creative and sporting fields.

Combining the best of traditional educational methods with exciting initiatives, Moreton First has created a distinctive school where pupils are active participants in the adventure of their education.

During the Open Day parents will be invited to meet the specialist teaching staff,  view the range of subjects on offer from IT, Science, English and Maths through to Mandarin, Spanish, Drama and Sport, and tour the plethora of facilities set in over 100 acres of stunning Shropshire parkland.

Parents will be able to see first-hand how Moreton First offers a unique path of learning with a rich and varied curriculum. Tours will include the state of the art Medical Science faculty, offering cutting edge technology for aspiring scientists, doctors, surgeons and vets, the IT Centre with a dedicated suite of computers, the 25 metre indoor swimming pool, and the latest development underway with the £1.45 million Holroyd Community Theatre to facilitate Drama and Musical workshops and productions.

Moreton First prides itself on its small class sizes, ensuring that strengths of individuals are recognised and nurtured.

Head of Moreton First, Mrs Catherine Ford, said: “We believe the goal of education must be to develop individual character whilst cultivating a community where respect and consideration are paramount.

“A prospectus can provide only a glimpse of the wealth of opportunities that await children at Moreton First. Come and see what makes this an outstanding provision and attend our Open Day on Saturday 2nd February at 10am.”
