More than just a school

A true community in the widest sense.

Moor Park, is a co-educational boarding and day school accepting children from 3 months to 13 years of age near Ludlow in Shropshire. Our children are prepared mentally, emotionally and physically to move on with con dence to the full range of schools nationally, many on scholarships in a variety of disciplines. Eton, Harrow, Radley, Shrewsbury as well as the more local schools are regular destinations. The children make full use of 85 acres of beautiful grounds and the whole school is underpinned by a culture of kindness and inclusivity founded on Catholic principles.

Why Moor Park

Caterpillar Room: Babies 3 months to 2 years

Tick Tock Nursery provides a lovely, bright and spacious environment for babies – perfect for your little one to grow in confidence, play and interact safely. We can cater for up to 16 children in our under 2’s unit.

Butterfly Room: Toddlers aged 2 to 3 years

As children develop and refine the skills learnt as babies, their daily routines require a more structured approach to learning and play.

Early Years

We were delighted to be deemed as Outstanding in all areas by the ISI Inspectorate in our May 2016 Inspection report

Years 1 & 2

Despite the fact that the curriculum becomes a little more formal in Year 1 and 2, with perhaps a little less play and a little more ‘working’ time, there is no less fun, creativity, laughter and enjoyment

The Prep School

Moor Park is a co-educational country prep school in a beautiful setting in the Shropshire countryside, combining outstanding academic and extra-curricular success, with a culture of kindness founded on Catholic principles.


At Moor Park we believe in the benefits of a boarding experience and the two Boarding Houses are an integral part of Moor Park. We offer full, weekly and flexi-boarding, which is very popular for children and parents alike.

A very warm welcome from Charlie Minogue, the Headmaster.

An education in the fullest sense of the word is one of the most precious things a child can receive. Moor Park, a co-educational prep school set in 85 stunning acres of Shropshire countryside, is almost uniquely placed to provide exactly that.

Moor Park children routinely transfer to an extremely wide range of schools including some of the very finest in the country.  There are no glass ceilings set here: Moor Park pupils are given every opportunity to fulfil their potential in the classroom, at whatever level. We are proud of our record of success in senior school entrance tests and scholarships which speaks for itself; please do look at the full list published on this website. However, education is far more than simply preparing for exams. Encouraging Moor Park children to think independently and creatively in and out of the classroom whilst helping them to avoid a fear of failure is at the heart of the process. This also makes learning fun; something we have a lot of here!
