What the school says...

The school enjoys an excellent record of scholarships with awards won to Stowe, Cheltenham Ladies' College, Malvern College, Ampleforth, Shrewsbury and St Mary's Ascot, in the last few years. Moor Park's distinctive atmosphere and ethos continue to make it a happy and successful educational community!

Special Education Needs

We have an excellent learning support department, staffed by one full-time member of staff and several part-time specialists. Teaching is normally on a one-to-one basis but there is some paired group work. Support may be given for gifted children, dyslexia, dyspraxia, extra help with literacy/reading, numeracy, study skills, and ESL. The school is proud of its attention to the individual and the Learning Support Department embodies this.
