A message from the Principal

In the short time I have been at the school I have quickly learned that Temple Moor High School is a fantastic place to work and learn. We are not just any old school; we are a thriving, dynamic and forward looking school community not frightened of change and fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead for us as a school. As the Principal I am proud, and honoured, to lead the staff and students at the school through its next stage, onwards and upwards, to greater heights in the future. I recognise that we are entering a new chapter in the life of the school and I understand some may need reassurance about the future and for what may come next; but, I can assure you here that I have been given the sense that this is an exciting next phase for the school, full of positive anticipation and high self-confidence. I know this because of listening to the many people I have had the fortune to have conversations with over the last few weeks; be it with students, parents, governors or staff. I encourage you to find more out about the school and, in particular, if you are a parent, visiting this website, please get in touch with us here, we welcome your positive input into the future of the school. More importantly though, we need your support and your commitment to help us make this school a “centre for excellence” in the community.

I firmly believe that relationships between teachers, students, parents and guardians are the bedrock to the success of a school. All of us working together can ensure that students enjoy their time at TMHS, make excellent progress and leave us as considerate, well-qualified, confident young people; ready to take on the challenges of modern society. Every teacher is committed to delivering the very best teaching and learning, in order that all students can improve their academic and personal outcomes. This is supported by an extensive extra-curricular programme at the school. Subsequently, our students are happy and developing quickly as independent, aspirant learners who themselves want to make a difference.

I very much hope you find our website informative and you are able to gain a real insight into the amazing experiences and successes our students enjoy here. I also hope to speak with you in the future and I thank you for your interest in the school.

Best wishes
