Our small family of boarders are very fortunate to live, learn and play within our historic 14 acre grounds. Located within the New Forest National Park, it is an idyllic setting and wonderful environment for them to develop as young people and make life-long friendships. There is a strong emphasis on traditional family values which helps make the boarding house feel like a home away from home.
Our three dedicated house parents provide an exceptional level of pastoral care and stability to our boarders; ensuring that a happy family atmosphere is created where children feel cared for. Furthermore, the development of each individual child is at the forefront of every decision taken in boarding and so children feel respected and know that they matter.
Comfortable and attractive bedrooms, cosy common rooms and quiet study areas combine with modern new, clean shower and toilet facilities to provide the best of both worlds – the historic and the contemporary – all within a stunning 16th Century manor house.
On weekends and at evenings, boarders enjoy numerous extra-curricular activities within our extensive grounds. Each boarder selects two activities each term from a long list of varied activities and sports which are ran by members of our teaching staff. They are also able to make use of our sports facilities, art room, ICT suite and gym during their free time. Our in-house catering team provide a wide selection of healthy and delicious meals and can cater for a wide variety of dietary requirements, allergies and intolerances. Special events such as birthdays, seasonal celebrations and local and international holidays are marked on the calendar, with our catering team creating special meals and themed evenings to make each event extra special.
At weekends, boarders visit a local attraction or city on one of our excursions. Often these excursions are planned with the assistance of our boarders to ensure we go somewhere that they will enjoy. Junior boarders are supervised at all times by our house parents or resident tutors, however senior boarders are able to explore in small groups – ensuring they become confident and independent young individuals.
Junior boarders sit with our house parents at mealtimes where they get the opportunity to share stories about their day and talk about anything they want to. This time also gives house parents the perfect opportunity to help model all the good manners and communication skills that children would learn in their own home.
All boarders spend at least one hour every evening studying and learning as part of our ‘prep time’. These sessions are supervised by a member of our teaching staff who is at hand to assist them and keep them on track. Junior boarders will often spend this time focussing on their spelling, reading, numeracy or on any homework they may have. Senior boarders are afforded a greater level of independence and can study at their desk in their rooms or in one of our study areas should they prefer to study as a group. They are monitored frequently by a member of our boarding staff.
Moyles Court provides a range of boarding options from full boarding and weekly boarding to flexi-boarding where families may choose to place their children in the boarding house for a short-fixed period of time. Our staff work tirelessly to ensure that even those boarders who only join us occasionally still feel a part of the boarding family.
Flexi-boarding is available to all our students, and charged on a night by night rate.
