Moor End is an Academy converter and converted to an Academy as an 'outstanding school' in August 2011. Before this the academy was a technology college for over ten years, and this grounding in technology still forms a strong part of curriculum and student experience.
Moor End is an award winning Academy and has continued to be recognised by Ofsted as ‘outstanding’. We have good and often invaluable support from parents. The Academy is an accredited ‘Thinking School’, the first to be awarded this status in the UK. We have worked closely with the Edward de Bono Foundation UK and Manchester Metropolitan University to become ‘An Edward de Bono Foundation UK Centre of Serious Creativity and Constructive Thinking’. Our vision is to become a world class centre of excellence for teaching and learning. Ofsted say ‘The teaching of thinking skills have a distinctive contribution to the quality of learning’
We celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2012 and ‘Moor Enders’ from far and wide made contact and wanted to let us know how the school and staff had influenced their lives. We really are making a difference. More recently, the Academy has become just one part of a vibrant campus, which includes; a thirty place pre-school, and the country’s first Presumption Free School – Beaumont Primary Academy. This school will open its doors in September 2018 with a capacity of up to 630 children. The site also houses some Trust offices and a separate conference facility. Truly exciting times!
This is a great opportunity for you to come in with some creative, imaginative ideas to help build and lead the open element of the curriculum from Year 7 through to Year 11. Curriculum enrichment is an integral focus of Computing and Business with students partaking in a variety of activities and competitions both locally and nationally.
