WELCOME TO THE MOAT SCHOOL

Over the fourteen years I have worked at The Moat, I have been privileged to be part of so many success stories.

What makes my job so rewarding is that whatever challenges our pupils 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.

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.

Whatever you think you know about us, come and see for yourself, I guarantee you will be very impressed.

FOCUSSED ON THE FUTURE

Every child is unique and each one has extraordinary talent waiting to be unearthed.

To do this, your child will need the confidence to dream and the skills to enquire, study, comprehend, lead and grow. Every aspect of The Moat School’s educational provision is designed to support pupils whilst they meet the challenge of achieving the very best they can. Creativity and future potential is fostered at an early stage so that our pupils leave The Moat transformed and ready to take on new challenges, be it higher education or a new career.

I am so happy with the Moat and what you guys are doing for my child. I have never heard my child say they love school before.Jane Garratt, Parent

A PLACE TO GROW

In a green and tranquil setting, The Moat School occupies a site that is protected by English Heritage.

The whole school community makes full use of the Bishop’s Park and the River Thames, with all the sporting facilities they offer. There are regular opportunities for your child to contribute to school events and in the wider community; The Moat has a long tradition of charity fundraising days organised by the pupils in their activity time.


 

“The Moat School is a compact and welcoming inner city specialist school… The pupil behaviour is excellent with rapport between staff and pupils, firm but friendly… The school is fully supported by the parents who state that the school has worked beyond expectations for their children’s academic and pastoral welfare.”


CReSTeD Report 2014

LEADING FACILITIES

Your child will learn when he or she is happy and fully supported.

Our school embraces and focuses on technology skills as well as creative subjects such as Art and Design, Drama and Performing Arts. We take children from the age of nine and pupils study National Curriculum subjects up to GCSE level in small classes that enable them to be strong independent learners. The Moat is a small school, but you will find a wealth of contemporary facilities, be it Information Technology, Food Technology, Design Technology (engineering and design), Science or Art and Design. Each department has dedicated areas for pupils to learn new subjects and acquire new skills. Our Design Technology department has forged links with a leading commercial supplier of tools, allowing pupils the opportunity to produce highly sophisticated work for their GCSEs.

Building Leaders & Innovators

MORE THAN A CLASSROOM…

We take advantage of our central location with regular visits to museums, galleries and events. There is also a compelling range of extracurricular subjects to choose from, including jewellery making, martial arts and Lego robotics. Two Moat School pupils have previously won the Hammersmith & Fulham Young Chef of the Year award. We offer the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, a biennial ski trip and an adventure assisting crew on Tall Ships. These enrichment events, trips and classes help to build character and resilience as your child enjoys all aspects of school life.

Tailored & Nurturing Environment

PASTORAL CARE SECOND TO NONE

Those pupils who lack confidence or self-esteem have the opportunity to flourish in a safe and supportive setting that focuses on their strengths whilst helping to overcome any barrier to learning. If a pupil needs additional help, we offer a package of therapy tailored to the needs of the child. All our specialist subject teachers have an additional qualification to teach children with SpLDs, providing an embedded therapeutic support that is unique to The Moat School.
