A BOARDING school near Oswestry has announced new developments scheduled for the new year following a £1 million investment in the infrastructure of the school site.

The investment will see work to upgrade and expand existing facilities at Moreton Hall, and will also bring new resources to the private school's 100-acre grounds.


The work will also involve the refurbishment of the school's 25-metre indoor swimming pool, which is home to local swimming groups Oswestry Otters and Chirk Dragons. 

Principal Michael Brewer said: “In addition to improving outcomes for pupils, these developments will increase our scope for outreach and partnership working locally and nationally.

“I look forward to working with our entire community to deliver a vision fitting of our wonderful school."

Work will include painting and resealing the pool, full replacement of the walking area and a new seating area.

Duncan Murphy, Chair of Moreton Hall, said the "substantial and long-term investment" shows "commitment and foresight on the part of Moreton Hall, coming at a time when many schools are curtailing development plans, as well as during our 110th anniversary year”.

He also highlighted that it is ‘clear’ the investment will bring a lot of benefits.

Arthur Su, Director of International Operations, added: “Our goal is to pursue excellence while maintaining our authenticity and unique characteristics.”
