Moreton Hall, near Oswestry, connected with a record number of prospective pupils and their families during its virtual Open Day. Opening its doors to a global audience, the school attracted students both internationally and from across Britain, including London and the North West.  All were seeking to find out what makes Moreton Hall one of the UK’s top performing independent schools, educating pupils from Nursery age through to Sixth Form.

The online information session enabled families to get a taste of the school’s outstanding educational provision and chat live with current staff and pupils who described their academic journey, school life and future aspirations.

Moreton Hall is a forward-looking school and attracts students from all over the world, with its strong reputation for sporting excellence, performing arts, careers advice and academic success. The exceptional pastoral care, based upon knitting together academic guidance with pupil wellbeing, detailed knowledge of every individual and unlimited extra support and help are some of the key factors in explaining the school’s remarkable success in public examinations across GCSE and A Level.

In his welcome address Principal George Budd talked about the school’s core values of scholarship, gaiety and humanity that remain central to both boarding life and its family-feel learning experience.

George said, “We received so many warm messages after the virtual open day about how our pupils were self-assured, natural and comfortable in being themselves.  Having our values reflected back to us in this way is a ringing endorsement of everything we represent as a school.”
