welcome from the principal
It is my privilege to introduce Derby Moor Academy’s website. I trust that it gives you a flavour of our vibrant school community and the opportunities and successes that our students enjoy. Derby Moor is a fully comprehensive school and we are rightly proud of the progress that all our students make.
The core purpose of Derby Moor is summarised in our school motto “Together we succeed”. This motto is underpinned by our four values:
- Achievement – we believe that every student, regardless of background or personal circumstance can achieve.
- Aspiration – we believe that strong achievement is grounded in the best teaching and learning experience which ensures that all students will aspire to be the best they can be. We are committed to continuing professional development so that all staff members are supported to be the best they can be.
- High Expectations – we have high expectations of students, both in terms of achievement and behaviour.
- Community – we create and support a sense of belonging so that all members of the school community feel valued and are kept safe.
Derby Moor is a vibrant and exciting place to study and work with many opportunities available to our students. We want only the best for our students and we will go above and beyond to ensure that is the case.
We are fortunate to have a purpose-built school with state of the art facilities and extensive ICT provision. However, a school is so much more than a building, and you will only get a feel for what makes Derby Moor tick, if you come and see us in action. Please contact reception, and we will make an appointment for you to have a tour with myself or one of my Senior Team.
I look forward to meeting you and sharing our school journey with you.
