Hall of High Standards

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.

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.

She also received excellent feedback from her recent mock interview:

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.
