Children have only one chance at education, and, alongside the influence of family, an educational experience has lifelong consequences.
Helping children to pass exams is, of course, one outcome that we can all measure but if the purpose of education is to prepare young people to be happy and successful in the adult world, schools must do far more than simply prepare young people to take exams.
At Moor Park, we take a long-term view for the children in our care. We will not complete their educational journey but, as Gordon B. Hinckley once said:
“You can’t build a great building on a weak foundation”.
Our schemes of work and teaching methods from nursery to Y8 have been designed to deliberately encourage the thinking skills, as well as the knowledge, that young people will need in a fast changing world.
Creativity, curiosity, critical thought, confidence, independence, and resilience are all deliberately fostered, and the results are plain to see.
In the last five years, 118 leavers have won a total of 98 scholarships to senior schools, and this from a non-selective intake.
We take pride in finding something that every child can be good at and surround them with an exceptional culture of kindness, boosting the confidence of all pupils as they benefit from their time in 85 acres of stunning Shropshire countryside.
The pandemic has highlighted the importance of education to us all and increasing numbers of families are investing in a Moor Park education to give their children the best possible start in life.
We hope that you might consider visiting us soon to find out why.
