Our school enjoys doing things together.

Great Learning – Manners, hard work and honesty

Achieving good results in public examinations increases one’s options in life. We aim to provide our students with the opportunities to perform to their full potential, thereby increasing their educational and career opportunities. Great learning is underpinned by our traditional values, which inspire all of us to try harder as individuals, so that collectively we thrive.

Strong Character Development

We work to ensure that our students grow to become responsible and thoughtful members of our society able to make a positive contribution to our society. Alongside our deeply held values we encourage in our students a strong moral code which we expect them to display at all times and which we call the Mossley Hollins way. Our busy calendar of wider curricular activities and experiences allows young people to thrive and to develop strong skills in teamwork, independence and leadership.

Traditional values in a modern setting

We believe that he who works hard will always flourish. Underpinning this is our strongly held belief that students can succeed regardless of their background or prior learning. Our modern curriculum embraces the rigour of strong academic subjects and we are proud that over 40% of our students achieve the English baccalaureate qualification. We are proud to serve our local community and actively promote strong links with our community partners to improve outcomes for all stakeholders. Our state of the art 21st century buildings and facilities provide a stimulating and welcoming environment for our pupils and staff to flourish in a caring school where social responsibility, honesty, equality and consideration for others lie at the core of all we do.
