Teachers and Pupils celebrate new head’s first term

Mrs Frost started as headteacher in September 2021, following her previous roles of both business manager and assistant head at the school. Mrs Frost worked closely with our previous headteacher, Jonathan Harrison (proprietor and executive headteacher) since first joining the school in 2015.

Speaking of her first term, Mrs Frost said: “I was fortunate to work directly with the previous headteacher, Jonathan, and learn and understand the vision of the school directly from him. When Jonathan decided to step away from the role after 10 years, it felt the natural and logical next step for my career to take the head position. Moorland is a fantastic school. We have a really close family feel and I am proud to know every child that attends our school.

“I want to utilise the skills from my previous roles and combine them with the knowledge that I have learnt from Jonathan to help lead the school in its next exciting chapter. We’re already well known as a Centre of Excellence for both ballet and football, but I want to extend that further and really showcase the academic excellence that we deliver at Moorland.”

The first term of the 2021/2022 academic year saw the return of school favourites including Harvest Festival celebrations, nativity plays and class performances.

Mrs Frost added: “It’s been fantastic to have all our children back in our classrooms and to be able to welcome parents and guardians back through our doors. Our pastoral team have worked tirelessly to make sure that each and every child has been reassured on returning to school life and they will continue to deliver this support throughout the next term.”

This term will see pupils prepare for mock exams, the return of school trips as well as the introduction of new education initiatives to support career planning.
