Headteacher's Welcome

Dear New Year 7 Students,

On behalf of governors and staff, I am delighted to welcome you to Team MSSC! It is an absolute privilege for me to lead our school community and I’m really looking forward to meeting you all and sharing everything we have to offer here at Moulton.

We want you to wear your school uniform with pride. Our blazer badge is a symbol of our identity and what it means to belong to our community. It represents confidence, strength, success and aspiration and has been worn by our students for over sixty years. We hope you are excited to become the next generation to contribute to our long and successful history.

A globe

We aim to prepare our young people for an ever-changing world that values self-confident, well-educated and enterprising young people. We believe you can do anything and go anywhere! Everything we do at Moulton is centred on ensuring that each individual student is educated and supported to flourish in the world today – as an individual, as a partner, as a member of a team and as a citizen.

A bull

The bull represents strength, power and determination to succeed. We are committed to ensure that each student is recognised and celebrated for all their achievements, both in and out of school. A triumph can be seen in a variety of different ways and we strive to show you that all of our students can achieve great things.

A last and shoe

A last is a mechanical form shaped like a human foot which is used by shoemakers in the manufacture and repair of shoes. This symbol typifies the enduring success of the Northamptonshire shoe industry with many of our towns and villages at one time or another being home to shoemakers, leather merchants, designers, tanneries and other related businesses.

Building on our past successes, we continue to seek new challenges and opportunities to help all our children fulfil their potential, both academically and socially. We want you to accomplish great things and become the very best version of yourself.

A scroll and pen

This symbol relates to education and especially to our ASPIRE ethos. In 1785, William Carey (an English Christian missionary) was appointed as the first schoolmaster for Moulton village. The words below became his most famous quotation: Expect great things from God; attempt great things for God. Today, Moulton School expects great things from its students and asks its students to strive for great things. With excellent facilities and high-quality teaching, we want you to be happy, challenged and motivated.

The pen and scroll also represents communication. We will work in partnership with you, our committed staff and our supportive parents and governors to secure the best possible outcomes for the next stage of your life journey.

To achieve the above, we provide an education that meets the needs of our young people, delivered in an educational environment that emphasises traditional standards of uniform, discipline and respect, whilst nurturing talent, ambition and the drive to succeed. We want all our students to be fully involved in their education, learning appropriate skills for living, for work and for happiness. You will learn about and live our values of respect, safety, positivity, cooperation and, my personal favourite, kindness.

We are truly sorry you have not had the opportunity to visit us in person and experience the exciting atmosphere of our wonderful school. Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, please take some time to click on the portal welcome.moultonschool.co.uk and watch our virtual tour and find out about curriculum areas.

I hope you will enjoy finding out about your new school and we look forward to meeting you properly as soon as possible.

Kind regards,

Mrs Dabbs
