Court Moor benefits from a great local reputation, a strong relationship with the community and is therefore regularly over-subscribed for places. The school prides itself on a caring approach to staff and students, without compromising rigorous academic standards. The school has always had a fairly traditional GCSE curriculum coupled with a broader commitment to the enrichment of the student experience.
The school is divided into year groups, and tutor groups are formed from within those year groups. Each year is led by a teacher who is the Head of Year and supported by a team of pastoral staff. This structure allows the Head of Year to get to know their students really well and guide them through the varying experiences of Court Moor life.
The school’s traditional values are reflected in our uniform and in the approach to education. Whilst we have a number of dedicated IT suites and mobile devices, we are not a school where students are required to bring their own computers to school for lessons. Quite simply we don’t believe that the modern generation suffer from not spending enough time in front of a screen! School for us, is for that interaction, to develop those face-to-face social skills - technology is a useful tool, but not the focus of a Court Moor education.
We are always happy to show round prospective parents and students. I would encourage you to telephone us or to fill out a Parent Tour Application Form to arrange a visit and to see the school on any working day. We have specific open mornings and an open evening for parents applying in the usual application round which are very popular. If your child has very specific needs or concerns, then you are more than welcome to contact us. Often tours are given by the students themselves, to allow you to get an honest and realistic view of the school, we are confident that they will embody the values and manners which we espouse and believe that they prove the very best ambassadors for the school.
Please take the time to browse the website and read more about us. I am confident that it will give you a flavour of what the school is about and what we stand for. Thank you for showing an interest in joining Court Moor and we look forward to welcoming you to our school in the near future.
