Our Vision

To provide a consistent, respectful, honest and enjoyable environment where pupils, 

through self belief, can aspire to be the best they can be.

Our Ethos

As a school we want all of our students to Engage and Achieve!

School Aims

  • Successful learners who enjoy, progress and achieve.
  • Confident individuals who live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
  • Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.

Through consultation with Governors, Parents, Pupils and Staff our School Values were agreed and these are embedded in REACH.

Respect Be respectful and supportive to one another.
Enthuse Engage and be positive at all times.
Achieve Aspire to be the best you can be and be prepared to take risks along the way.
Community Help to create a community which values trust, fairness, honesty and loyalty.
Hard work Always be determined and persevere in everything you do.

These values underpin the schools Behaviour and Rewards Systems and Policies. The Values are revisited, reinforced and discussed during form time, Personal, Social and Health Education programmes of study and assemblies.

At Moorside High School:

We expect students to engage with their learning and take advantage of all the opportunities for involvement, leadership and extra-curricular activity.

We expect our teachers to have a passion for learning and for making lessons active and interesting.

We understand that students should have a broad and balanced education both to prepare them for life and work in the 21st century, and as a means to individual personal growth and fulfilment.

We offer a range of qualifications including GCSE, BTEC and other vocational qualifications on the main site and the range of A level courses and combinations offered in our partnership 6th form at the Moorlands Centre is unrivalled.

We seek to develop in our students tolerance, respect for others and an active sense of right and wrong, which are the basis for a harmonious and effective school community, and a preparation for future citizenship.

In all of this, we value the unique contribution that the support and involvement of parents/carers make to the education of their child and to the life of the school as a whole.
