We are very proud of our students and their achievements. 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 hardworking staff. They are passionate about supporting and caring for our students. We aim to provide excellent care for our students. We know them as individuals. We ensure that they are happy and safe in school.


Moat is a very successful school; it was described as ‘Good’ in all areas in the most recent OFSTED report (January 2018).
