Welcome to the Moulton School & Science College Website
Sixth Form Information Evening
We are pleased to be able to welcome both students and parents to the school for a Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday 16th January 2014. There are two sessions running, either of which you may wish to attend.
Session 1 begins at 5.30 pm and Session 2 begins at 6.30 pm – both are in the Main School Hall, and you will then be able to meet the heads of subjects in the Sixth Form Centre.
The GCSE Certificates for exams taken this summer are now ready for collection. Those wishing to do so should contact the schools exams office.
School Trip Payments
As you will be aware, the school moved to electronic communication through ParentMail over 12 months ago. We are introducing ParentMail +Pay for school trips that are being organised throughout the academic year. Please do not confuse ParentMail +Pay with ParentPay.
ParentPay can only be used to purchase school dinners, whereas ParentMail +Pay is for school trips. Trip information will be sent via your ParentMail2 account together with instructions on how to pay. All payments made via ParentMail +Pay are secure, and payments can be made by either debit or credit card.
We will not be accepting cheques or cash for future trips, so please ensure that you use this method of payment as soon as possible.
If you have any queries, please call 01604 641600 and ask to speak to the finance department.

Ofsted judges Moulton School to be a good school
On 9-10 July 2013, the school was inspected by Ofsted. The school was judged to be a good school, including being judged to be good in all key areas; achievement, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety, and leadership and management.
The school was last inspected in November 2009, when it was judged to be satisfactory (a grading now replaced by the grading ‘requires improvement’), so this represents a significant improvement in Ofsted’s judgement of the quality of the provision and outcomes at the school. This improvement over recent years is a credit to all the staff, students, parents and governors who have been involved with the school during this time and who have worked so hard on a daily basis to make the outcome a reality.
Most importantly, what the report indicates is that the young people who come to Moulton are achieving well in a positive and supportive environment; and, as a consequence, have enhanced life chances, in the broadest sense.
The full report is available here.
We would like to congratulate all of the students who took their GCSE, A2 and AS exams this year on another strong overall performance, which also included many outstanding individual results. The students’ achievements are a testament to their hard work throughout the course and to the expertise and commitment of their teachers.
104 students sat A2 exams, with a pass rate of 99%; 74% of entries being graded at A*-C and a 18% of entries being graded at A*-A. The great majority of students met the requirements for their first choice university place.
216 students sat GCSE exams, with many measures indicating a record performance for the school. 82% of students attained 5 or more A*-C grades, with 63% attaining 5 or more A*-C grades including English and maths; and the key government measure of the average point score for the best 8 GCSEs was significantly higher than the school has previously achieved. There were also many outstanding individual results, with 73% of the cohort attaining an A*-A grade, 42% of the cohort attaining 3 or more A*-A grades and 28% of the cohort attaining 5 or more A*-A grades.

ParentPay and ParentMail
Letters regarding our new Cashless Catering System (ParentPAY) and E-Communication (ParentMAIL) were sent home last July. As of Monday, 10th Sept we will no longer be accepting cash payments for school meals. Please ensure that you have registered your childs ParentPAY account and credited funds ready for this date. You may, of course, continue to provide your child with a packed lunch should you so wish.
As a school, we are using email and text messages to provide a faster, greener method of communication, allowing you to retrieve all new and historical letters online. To register for this service an activation code was sent home. Unfortunately some codes were not registered within the six week period and have since expired. If you are unable to register for that reason or any other, please email our dedicated help address: email@example.com stating your childs name, year, form, post code and contact telephone number. We will reply with your new activation code. This is a great service that will benefit both you and your child; please register.
