For those parents already aware of Moorland and our teaching team, I believe that you will know exactly why Moorland is the right environment for your son or daughter.

In our experience of Sixth Form teaching, students are lectured at and not taught. At Moorland, young minds will be taught in small class sizes not exceeding 15 students. All subject matter will be thoroughly explained and students will be set appropriate coursework and homework to complete. Whilst we appreciate that our students are now young adults, they will still need reasonable pressure to be applied to ensure that they complete work to deadlines and achieve their true academic potential.

Students will be expected to be punctual to all lessons and attendance will be strictly observed. Unlike other Colleges and Sixth Forms, all study time will be structured, and directed by a professional teacher.

As a former Moorland School pupil myself, I can only say how proud and privileged I feel to be able to represent past and present pupils, as well as our parents, teachers and the local community which we serve.
