“Being at Moulton School has been a great experience and I have learnt lots!” Year 8 student.

“As a new member of staff I was made to feel valued and supported. Joining the school mid-way through a pandemic, I was apprehensive but the staff at Moulton school made me so welcome and it wasn't long before I felt part of the MSSC team. There is an ethos of kindness and it shows. I have never worked with staff that are so motivated by their school's values.  The leadership team are always close-by and ready to help and offer solutions, support and friendly encouragement. Thank you MSSC, I am so proud to work at this wonderful school. Teacher.
