The Moat School

"The School carefully nurtures pupils’ talents and creativity to enable them to flourish, fully in keeping with its aims." ISI, 2016

As Headmaster of The Moat School I am motivated by the progress that our pupils make; whatever challenges they face when they first come to The Moat, they leave us as confident independent young adults. Most go on to further and higher education, while others forge exciting and rewarding careers.

They are an inspiration to staff and younger pupils. Our pupils have a vast array of learning styles, yet with our help they thrive and succeed.

"(Pupils') behaviour in the classroom responds to the nurturing care provided by staff and fully supports their overall achievement." ISI, 2016

The level of pastoral care is apparent from the moment you walk through the door. Our pupils feel nurtured and supported through their entire time with us. The Moat is a small school with big ideas, with a team of dedicated staff whose shared belief is that pupils can and do succeed, a school of high challenge and high expectations.
