At Matthew Moss we teach students the skills which are vital for them to learn.
These are addressed in our CHANGE curriculum, which equips students so that there is nothing they will not be able to navigate as they create a good and satisfying life for themselves.

Ammar has been nominated for the Hall of High Standards for his Growth Mindset and High Standards.
Ammar described his artwork:
This is my piece of coursework that I have produced for my coursework. Many times I had felt like giving up on this work as much time, effort and thought was needed. I have always thought Art to be my weakest subject, however after thinking of this idea, I have had Growth Mindset all the way through.
Well done Ammar!

Sofia has received excellent feedback from Huntley Mount Medical Centre during her work experience placement:
Motivated, punctual, well presented and genuinely curious. Sofia seems to have made a significant decision re possible career choices. We could, if appropriate, arrange a meeting/telephone call with a Nurse Lecturer at Salford University. A real pleasure to have had Sofia.

Despite admittance of being nervous, Sofia shined right through that. She came across very well, confident and articulate. Gave very thorough answers and examples and has also shown commitment to activities outside school, charity work, and conquering her fear of heights. Overall very impressed and interviewed well.
