Middlestone Moor School transformed provision in core and foundation subjects by an innovative approach to curriculum design. Standards are above average and rising as a result of pupil progress and personal development. Independent study skills, creative and formal writing skills, self-confidence and understanding of scientific enquiry are strong characteristics and begin from an early age. Social, moral, spiritual and cultural aspects are carefully integrated into every topic.
