Our history 
Moor House School opened in 1947 and was the first school of it’s kind. It was set up by Dr Worster-Drought, a neurologist and Mrs Hudson Smith, a speech therapist and Principal of the West End School for Speech Therapy, London.

The school’s first patron was Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, who supported the school’s work and visited in 1953. MHS&C is fortunate to now have HRH Countess of Wessex as our Patron who opened our college provision for over 16 year olds, in November 2012. 


Pioneering work
Since 1947, pioneering work in speech and language therapy and teaching methods has continued at Moor House and our research expertise is shared with the international community. We welcome your support of our work.
