The Curriculum

At The Moat School the curriculum offers learners the opportunity to access a broad and balanced educational experience, designed to meet national, local and individual priorities. The timetable has been specifically designed by our Leadership Team with the aim of equipping pupils with the knowledge and skills necessary for living and working in today’s rapidly changing society. 

Games & the Arts

The Art Department seeks to enable all pupils to realise their creative potential and gain an insight into their individual understanding and engagement with the world. 

Art, Design & Photography gives pupils the opportunity to respond creatively to their experiences and environment, to gain an understanding of other artists’ work and to express their ideas and feelings in a visual way. It also helps to build confidence and self-esteem. 

Pastoral Care

Many young people have endured negative attitudes and lack of esteem in their school lives and we are available to help redress the impact of these effects in their time with us at the school. 

Pupils are able to self-refer through different means of access, including email and a post-box. Teachers, support staff and other school therapists may also suggest a counselling approach. Parents are always welcome to discuss aspects of well-being at school and at home, with the school counsellor. The school counsellor offers therapeutic support which is especially beneficial for pupils transitioning either from Year 6 to Year 7 or from Year 11 to post 16.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Welcome to The Moat School. We are a relatively small school with huge aspirations. At the end of their time with us, we would like every pupil to have found their passion in life. All pupils at The Moat have unique learning profiles and our staff are all qualified to help them with their Specific Learning Difficulties.  

Our young people are involved in a wide range of activities here at The Moat; as well as subject specific trips to museums and galleries we offer full school extracurricular activities, working alongside groups such as the Tall Ships Youth Trust, Duke of Edinburgh Award and Barn Elms Rowing, we work to expand the curriculum beyond the norm. 

As of September 2020, we will also provide post 16 in our secondary facility on Beavor Lane, Hammersmith. Supporting young people as they transition to adults. 

I invite you to come and visit our pupils and our wonderful site. I am convinced you will like what you see.”
