There are nine full time members of staff teaching English in the department. The ethos within the faculty is positive and mutually supportive and there is a strong commitment to developing and improving practice. The department is accommodated in a purpose built block in which there are seven English classrooms, an ICT room, a drama studio and a rehearsal room. There is also a department resource base. There is a further English room in the Sixth Form Centre.
The department is well resourced. Its work is supported by a wide range of audio-visual material, and there are interactive whiteboards in each of the main classrooms. The school has two well-stocked libraries: The Tussler Library in main school, and The Bessie Horne Library in The Sixth Form Centre. They are each staffed by library assistants and equipped with a wireless network of computers.
Moulton School is a successful, popular and over-subscribed school on the northern boundary of Northampton. The school was graded Good in its last two Ofsted inspections, and there is a strong commitment to further improvement based on effective teaching and learning and high expectations of students. Whilst maintaining firm discipline, built around our ASPIRE ethos and school values, the school is deeply committed to supporting the development of whole child, and is one of very few schools to hold the Restorative Services Quality Mark. Our student leadership programme is also a significant strength of the school. As a member of staff at Moulton School, your on-going professional development is of crucial importance, and the school has an outstanding record of supporting colleagues into middle and senior leadership roles.
