The Academy & The Trust

About the Academy

Welcome to Moorhead Academy.

We are very proud of our school, where you will find hardworking, dedicated staff and happy children who enjoy learning.

We have and exciting curriculum and very high expectations of our students which we believe will enable them to:

  • Discover their own interests and strengths
  • Develop a love of learning and an appreciation of the world around them
  • Become articulate and confident young people
  • Be responsible and independent
  • Be ready for High School

Our motto is, We are all stars, and we work closely with families and a wide range of professional agencies to support all children to reach their full potential.

We hope that you find our website helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact the academy if you have any further queries.

  • A ‘can do’ attitude is actively promoted and prevalent throughout the Academy.
  • There is a culture of success where achievement is rewarded and celebrated.
  • Underpinned by high aspirations and ambition for both students and staff there is an expectation for everyone to be determined and have a desire and commitment to continuously improve.
  • The independent status of the Academy is fully embraced to encourage self confidence, a pro-active approach and taking responsibility for one’s own actions whilst enabling rapid and appropriate response to changing circumstances.
