Prospective pupils and parents can still make it to Moreton Hall's May Open Day

Moreton Hall school near Oswestry, Shropshire, has responded creatively to the challenges posed by the lockdown to ensure a warm welcome awaits prospective pupils and their parents at the school's Virtual Admissions Day on Saturday, May 2nd.

The May Open Day is usually a chance for visiting families to stroll the school’s stunning grounds, visit facilities such as the Science Centre and the brand new Holroyd Community Theatre, and to meet the academic and pastoral team to discover what makes Moreton Hall one of the UK’s finest educational establishments. 

This year, with lockdown restrictions in place, the doors will be virtually open and parents of girls and boys up the age of 11 and of girls from 11-18 will be invited to experience the school’s unique values.

For Richard Briggs, the school’s Communications Development Officer, creating a virtual Admission’s Day is an exciting challenge: “Parents are invited to join members of the Senior Management Team, Academic departments, boarding housemistresses and students themselves to discover remotely a little of the Moreton Magic. The event will be held via video conferencing and allows prospective families from across the globe to gain an insight into life at Moreton Hall.”

School Principal, George Budd, meanwhile see the Virtual Admissions day as a unique opportunity to showcase Moreton Hall whilst reiterating that when it comes to providing a first class and rounded education, it’s business as usual.

“In recent weeks, I have been so impressed by the flexibility, creativity, determination and commitment of the staff and students at Moreton as they adapt to online remote learning," says Mr Budd. "Our parents and students tell us they feel similarly - we have been overwhelmed by messages of thanks and support. It is testament to our ethos that pastoral wellbeing and co-curricular breath remain top priorities alongside inspirational and challenging academic and enrichment programmes”.
