What the school offers its staff

Moorside High School is a popular and successful school that offers education for students aged 11-16. We have strong links with our partner primary schools ensuring when students arrive, they are already familiar with many of our teachers and have visited our site to enjoy lessons here numerous times before formally joining us.

We work in partnership, with integrity to ensure our students are at the heart of all we do, ensuring every opportunity is available, instilling equity, being completely inclusive, striving for excellence, whilst staying people centered. Above all, we will live by our school values, Consideration, Aspiration, Resilience, Equality. We have a clear moral purpose and strong educational philosophy to provide each student with the very best education and ensure that, no matter what their background is, students leave us with the skills and support they need to thrive in life beyond school. It seems simple and obvious, but there is nothing more important than the quality of teaching and learning in our classrooms – every minute, every lesson, every day. Staff are learners too. We place significant emphasis on staff development and collaborative partnerships to ensure what goes on in and beyond our classrooms is as good as it can be.

Our school is located on the state-of-the-art Moorside Campus, where we embrace the latest technologies, facilities, and equipment to provide a platform for students to prosper.
