Superb Transport Links

The majority of our students who live overseas travel from Manchester Airport which is just fifty minutes away from Moorland School by car.

However Moorland School is equidistant from 3 airports, the largest being Manchester Airport, and the 2 smaller airports, being Leeds Bradford Airport and Liverpool Airport.

Moorland School provide a free airport collection and drop off service. The school utilises their own transportation and CRB cleared drivers. Moorland School’s House Parents also ensure that children are fully accompanied by them into the airport, and then all children are personally seen through ‘check in’, before being seen through the ‘Departures Gate’.

Please ensure that you have read and understood the airlines ‘Unaccompanied Minor Policy’ before booking your child’s airline tickets. *Please ensure that you have communicated this to the school office.

An unaccompanied minor is a child without the presence of a legal guardian. This term is used in immigration law and in airline policies. The specific definition varies from country to country and from airline to airline.
