WELCOME TO MOAT
We aim to work together to ensure that all of our students achieve their potential academically and in all other areas.
The College has an extremely committed and hard working staff. They are passionate about supporting and caring for our students.
Moat is a very successful school; it was described as ‘Good’ in all areas in the most recent OFSTED report (January 2014). In particular the school was praised for its teaching and the behaviour of its students.
We aim for our students to leave us as confident, kind, hard working, tolerant and positive individuals. They will be fully prepared for the next stage of their education.
Finally they will have high expectations of themselves and go on to achieve great things.

The college has consulted with staff, students and governors to produce a set of college values.
These will be followed by all members of the college community and will be used to inform all areas of college life.

OUR SENIOR TEAM
The Senior Leadership Team works to ensure that staff and students are fully supported to be able to work and learn effectively in the College.
They work with the Governing Body to develop a vision for the College and then develop a strategy to implement this vision. They will write a College Improvement Plan each year and evaluate the success of the College.
On a day to day basis the Senior Leadership team is very visible around the College, ensuring that it is a happy, harmonious and safe environment for staff and students.
They also look to build links with parents, the community and other partners to enhance the opportunities that can be offered to students.
