Smaller Class Sizes & Individual Tutoring Support

Our non-selective methods, small class sizes, and individualised education plans are all part of the Moorland DNA. Our education staff, as well as pastoral teams and support staff, work with students and parents daily to celebrate success, identify gaps in learning, and help create a rich learning environment. All students within the school also hold their own individual Learning Passports which ensures that their individual needs are fully catered for.

Our academics are supported by regular reviews and updates. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Gifted and Talented Fastrack for early GCSE examinations
  • Curriculum Review Panel
  • NASENCo-trained staff who inform our SEN Programme
  • Regular communication with parents from pastoral teams
  • Inclusive Learning Team for higher-level support

Producing Internationally Successful Ballet Dancers

Led by renowned Directors, Lynsey and Simon Kidd, our aim is to instil professional values within our students, by teaching etiquette, decorum and respect for the studio, the art form, the teachers and peers. These qualities implement professionalism, courtesy and respect for oneself.

Moorland International Ballet Academy encourages self-discovery and nurtures the development of each student’s unique artistic qualities. Students thrive on the positive and inspiring atmosphere created by the motivated faculty who value the importance of confidence and happiness. From classical training and modern dance to conditioning, choreography, and dramatic training, our multi-faceted approach helps our students reach new heights and pursue careers in the professional world of ballet.
