Moreton Hall School

Weston Rhyn, Oswestry, Shropshire, SY11 3EW

Moreton Hall School review

Founded in 1913, Moreton Hall School actively promotes the development of students' proactive understanding of global affairs while emphasising group activities. It is particularly suitable for independent-minded girls who enjoy discussing and exchanging ideas with others. Compared to most boarding schools for girls in the UK, which generally focus on the development of the arts and sciences, this school values not only the arts but also business education. Each year, many graduates pursue subjects such as business management, economics, and finance at universities in the Russell Group, making it an excellent choice for girls aspiring to enter the business world.

Moreton Hall School Introduction

Excellent public examination results and encouragement of EPQ research

As a small girls' school, Moreton Hall achieves excellent results in public examinations. Alongside a wide range of subjects, the school upholds the traditional focus on the arts found in British girls' schools, offering art, photography, textile design, art history, and other art subjects for students to choose from. Additionally, the school encourages students to enrol in EPQ (Extended Project Qualification), an interdisciplinary research project that they can undertake as one of their subjects. With guidance from teachers, students conduct independent research on topics of their choice, allowing them to familiarise themselves with the academic research skills required at the university level. This is especially beneficial for students interested in pursuing academic research at universities within the Russell Group, as EPQ is highly regarded by universities.

Emphasis on extracurricular knowledge and various academic societies to broaden students' horizons

While most girls' schools emphasise both academic and extracurricular activities, Moreton Hall aims to expand students' knowledge and broaden their awareness in various fields through activities, lectures, and group learning beyond the regular curriculum. The school's notable "Three Societies—Bronwen, Lady Barbirolli, and Jenner—frequently organise extracurricular academic discussions, professional-level music appreciation events, experiments related to medical science, and academic lectures. It is evident that the school highly values students' absorption of external knowledge and integrates it with their academic studies, allowing students to benefit from both aspects.

Student-run enterprises to provide real business experiences

With expertise in teaching business subjects, Moreton Hall offers both business and economics as part of its A-Level curriculum, which is relatively rare among British boarding schools. To provide students with experiences in planning, organising, and operating in the business world, the school has established Moreton Enterprises, which is entirely run by students. Students take charge of running snack shops and coffee shops, organising roundtable meetings with outstanding businesswomen, and hosting large annual conferences. Through these activities, students develop skills essential in the business world, such as teamwork, event planning, leadership, and risk management. Additionally, these experiences allow students to put their classroom learning into practice in various aspects, which greatly benefits their university applications and future career prospects.

UK Education: Is Archaeology Becoming a New Favourite?

Archaeology: More than Just the Study of Artefacts When discussing archaeology, people often associate it with terms like "artefact conservation" and "history." However, Vincent, an education consultant, discovered differences in elective courses offered in the second and third years of archaeology programmes at various UK universities. He identified four main categories: Historical Focus: This is the most typical archaeology programme that combines history and social sciences with some scientific methods to understand the development of humanities, society, and economy in ancient Greece, ancient Rome, China, the Mediterranean, the UK, and other regions. "The historical periods studied mainly range from ancient history and mediaeval history to the 19th century. Represented by prestigious universities such as Nottingham and Liverpool." Social Sciences: Archaeology programmes in this category are a blend of archaeology, ancient history, sociology, economics, anthropology, philosophy, and museum studies. "It suits students who want to understand history and archaeology from multiple perspectives. Newcastle University is a representative in this category." Biological Approach: This category involves more scientific elements, particularly biology and palaeontology. "These archaeological programmes focus on scientific approaches such as DNA analysis and the biological genetics of decomposed […]
