Friends of Moor House

Friends of Moor House is a voluntary association, with no membership fees or obligations, for those with an interest in the School & College who would like to be kept informed of news and developments. Local residents with no family links to Moor House are especially welcome.

What we do

The association aims to help and support students and staff in various ways from offering advice to practical support. For example, we have asked our members if any could help us find work experience opportunities for our College students, and recently we have invited offers of help with walking one of Moor House’s two therapy puppies.

In our foundation year, 2018-19, we introduced two shields to be awarded annually, in the School and the College, to students who have shown special merit in looking outwards to the wider community. 

Members receive a newsletter each term and occasionally other communications, and in November 2019 we welcomed some twenty members to an open morning which included a tour of the School.

New members are very welcome

Many of our members are former students or their parents. Some have served as members of staff or voluntary governors. And we especially welcome local residents and those who have kindly contributed to fundraising or other activities. 

If you would like to join, please complete our online application form or call us on 01883 712271 to request a paper form to be posted to you. There are no obligations other than to provide your details and consent so we can contact you.

How we are organised

We have a small Steering Committee which meets at present twice a year.

The Chair is elected by members, and other committee members are appointed by the Chair and the Governors' representative.

The current committee comprises:

John Stevens (Chair)
Donald Payne
Anders Stead
Clark Townley
Veronica Connery 
Sue Brady 
Jane Vallance (Governors' representative)
Helen Middleton, as Principal, joins our meetings and advises us, and brings other members of staff as she sees fit.
