Leaving School Equipped To Succeed.
Co-Educational & Boarding School
Moorland is a non-selective, co-educational school which teaches a combination of ‘Day Students’ within the Lancashire area and ‘Boarding Students’ from across the UK and overseas.
Our student intake has always been broad since we offer more than simply academic excellence.
Our main admissions criteria centre on favourable school reports, good behaviour, a positive outlook and a willingness to learn.
Our day pupils travel the length and breadth of Lancashire’s Ribble Valley, often using our convenient school bus service.
Many of our boarders come from forces families or have parents who work or travel abroad. In addition, Moorland also has a growing contingent of international students, broadening their horizons through an English education. It all adds up to a perfect mix.
With a long history of succeeding at the highest level, Moorland School achieves these standards by valuing every individual and ensuring that their potential is maximised.
Small class sizes, capped significantly lower than most other schools, allow us to offer close tuition for each student.
Every need is detected and served as opposed to being in an overcrowded environment where students can become lost amongst others.
Students benefit from having teachers that make every child feel valued and feeling a sense of belonging to a school where all enjoy their education without barriers. Every parent sends their child to an independent school to achieve and enjoy their education.
This is a key feature of the success of every child at our school. The pastoral care system at Moorland is unique in its ability to ensure our students feel valued both inside and outside the classroom.
At Moorland School we are constantly striving to ensure we provide a rich and warm family environment.
Whether it is in the classroom, the playing fields or even the school canteen we want our students to feel at home.
All teachers benefit from being able to teach small class sizes which allow for a greater understanding between teacher and student.
This ensures that a Moorland education is tailored to each individual and each child leaves Moorland School equipped to succeed in their lives.

Moorland School from Clitheroe aiming for national glory in the ESFA PlayStation®Schools’ Cup Finals
Moorland School from Clitheroe will take to the hallowed turf of Reading FC’s Madejski Stadium as they bid to win the countrywide U14 Boys English Schools’ FA (ESFA) PlayStation® Schools’ Cup.
Moorland School will be part of the three-day PlayStation Schools’ Cup Festival, which runs from Monday 21st to Wednesday 23rd May. They will face Ibstock Place from Surrey, on Tuesday 22nd May with the opportunity to be crowned the ESFA U14 PlayStation Schools’ Cup champions.
The finals festival sees all players given the full match-day experience. They will warm up in Reading FC’s £1million indoor training facility before changing in the main stadium dressing room and making their way onto the Madejski Stadium pitch in front of a lively and enthusiastic crowd.
With free entry for all attendees, the Festival has become a popular day out for supporters and school friends. Over 6,000 spectators attended last year’s finals. A feast of football, celebrity appearances and a series of spectator competitions and activities contribute to the electric atmosphere. The volume will be cranked up even louder this year with a decibel meter measuring the noisiest supporters each day.
Last year’s Festival was backed by Peter Crouch, Leighton Baines and England women’s captain Steph Houghton. This year’s finals are set to attract a host of star names keen to support this highly acclaimed grassroots initiative – the biggest in England.
PlayStation UK Marketing Director Mark Bowles commented: “We’re delighted to return to Reading Football Club for the 2018 PlayStation Schools’ Cup Festival. It is great to give so many pupils the chance to represent their school in a national tournament. For the competing players and their travelling supporters, the trip to the Madejski Stadium will be their equivalent to a Wembley final.”
ESFA Chairman, Owen Aiston, added: “The ESFA PlayStation Schools’ Cup Festival is a fantastic opportunity to showcase some of the very best Schools’ Football talent in England. Teams who have made it to the National Finals have already shown themselves to be amongst the best squads in the country, which is an outstanding achievement for all involved. We are thrilled to be welcoming schools and their supporters back to Reading FC’s Madejski Stadium for, what is sure to be, another fantastic event.”
