                              Welcome to Matthew Moss High School
                              Dear Parents and Learners
                              At Matthew Moss we are very proud of our school and its
                              achievements. We have an excellent site, with farm land on two
                              sides. In the last four years £4m has been invested in improving our
                              facilities with a new sports hall, an excellent area for our three
                              learning mentors and totally re-furbished science labs. We have also
                              remodelled our technology rooms. Further major development of
                              our site will come with the “Building Schools for the Future”
                              investment, which starts in September 2010.

However, our most valuable asset is our people. We have talented staff who work as a cohesive
team which puts successful learning for learners first. Indeed, Matthew Moss has built a
significant reputation across the North West for its work on developing “Learning to Learn”
programmes and the teaching of thinking skills. As our last OFSTED Inspection observed “This is
a school that is characterised by teamwork”.

At Matthew Moss High School we try to give each learner the personal motivation and support to
become a successful learner. We challenge each learner with activities, both inside and outside the
classroom, which takes them further as learners than they have been before. This work is bearing
fruit. Because of our achievements, the Government has awarded the school Training School
status. In September 2008 we took up a new role as a Science and Maths Specialist School. We
have also won recognition from “Creative Partnerships”, with significant funding to help us develop
our Key Stage 3 curriculum and we were one of fifteen schools nationally to be chosen to join the
prestigious “Learning Futures” programme. This is a group of schools who have been picked to join
an internationally focused project to develop 21st Century learning.

We were inspected by an OFSTED team in November 2007. Their evaluation was that: “This is a
good school that provides a good quality of education and good value for money. The school is led
and managed very well”.

In this prospectus we hope you gain some insight into the challenges and successes of Matthew
Moss learners. However, there is no substitute for seeing the real thing.

If you would like to visit the school please contact us. We would like to share our school with you,
to share the ‘Matthew Moss Experience.’

Yours sincerely

                        are planned for learners before they start at
                        Matthew Moss. There are Open Evenings for
                        both parents and children and Sampler Days
                        where primary school children visit Matthew
                        Moss for a day’s lessons.

                       There are times when teachers from Matthew
                      Moss visit primary schools to talk to groups of
                    learners and there are many extra curricular
                  activities and joint curriculum initiatives.

              Please telephone the school to arrange a visit.
