For our Upper Five pupils, and external families considering Moreton Hall for their A Level programme, Moreton Sixth Form Information Evening was a one stop shop experience, introducing pupils and their families to Moreton’s bespoke Sixth Form programme. With the Halsall-Williams Library playing host to the A Level subjects and activities fair, there were a wealth of opportunities to talk to teaching staff and current students about A Level choices, as well as activities such as Spoken English, CCF, MUN and the many Sixth Form societies.
In the Introduction to Moreton Sixth briefing, parents and pupils, both in The Holroyd Community Theatre and joining us on the live stream, heard from staff and students about the step up to Sixth Form and about the exceptional academic, co-curricular and pastoral provision highlighted by the school’s position as Tes Boarding School of the Year. According to Moreton Sixth Registrar, Caroline Lang, the evening marks the first step in a year-long programme of preparation for Sixth Form life. Reflecting on this first event with the Class of 2022-24 she commented: “Each year, Moreton Sixth is shaped by the students, some who will have been with us since Moreton Prep, others who will join next September. This always feels a very special moment as a new cohort begins to come together to experience our unique brand of ambitious, joyous and nurturing Sixth Form life”.
An Upper Five parent added: The Sixth Form Information Evening was an invaluable insight into the transition from Upper Five into Sixth Form. It really highlighted not only the amazing breadth and flexibility of academic subjects and extracurricular options that are available to students, but also the level of care and attention that each and every staff member gives to all pupils to ensure that their Moreton Sixth experience is successful in every way, both academically and pastorally. It was a timely reminder of how lucky pupils are at Moreton to have such highly-specialised and caring teachers to guide them through such an important time in their lives. As a parent it really puts your mind at rest to know that your child is in such safe hands!
For current Upper Five pupil, Evie “being able to visit any stand I wanted was very useful because it opened my mind to subjects that I had never thought about before like Classic Civilization and Psychology”. Reflecting on the event, Principal George Budd said: “This evening is part of our four-year journey through the GCSE and A-level years. It provides our pupils with the opportunity to look beyond the intensity of the GCSE years towards the green pastures of Sixth Form study, with increased freedom and independence and where they have selected those subjects they enjoy and are successful in, and which keep doors firmly open for their futures. Moreton Hall’s Sixth Form provides an inspiring environment that ensures every Moretonian leaves able to tackle challenges head-on and with the resilience to stand on their own two feet”.
