Nationally celebrated as a centre for excellence, and repeatedly graded Outstanding in every area by Ofsted (most recently for both the school and the boarding provision in March 2023, and again for Boarding in November 2023), our school boasts a rich, 85 year history of supporting boys with Specific Learning Difficulties, weakness in developmental language, and associated conditions, to realise successes far beyond their expectations, transforming their futures. Whilst our academic results at GCSE, A Level and BTEC are consistently above the national average for all schools, the education experienced by More House students is much broader than exam syllabus prescription.
Many of our 500 pupils arrive with little self-confidence. As one community, we build pupils’ academic, creative, sport and social achievement. A wide curriculum of academic subjects is complemented by an inspiring extra-curricular programme, so that each boy is successful amongst his peers, and learns to recognise that success.
Growing our students’ self-confidence and independence enables them to transform their lives, achieving remarkable academic success, and pursuing aspirational futures. For the majority this means continuing their education by progressing from our Sixth Form to universities, but others will move into industry-based learning or to other further education courses.
More House offers full boarding, weekly boarding and day places.
