Mossley and Carrbrook Partnership


 The partnership between Mossley Hollins High School, Milton St John, Micklehurst All Saints, St George’s, Livingstone and Buckton Vale Primary Schools was established in January 2012 and is presently flourishing.


The aim of the partnership was to join up educational thinking and working across the primary and secondary sectors to make learning, progress and attainment from 3-16 as seamless as possible within the communities, for both families and schools.

  • Have a broader curriculum and wider experiences such as a themed Spanish day
  • Learn to play a brass instrument
  • Have MFL teaching from a subject specialist from Y2-6

The Big Sing

This event took place at Mossley Hollins with 180 students in attendance from six schools all belonging to MCSP. All participants started the afternoon with a warm up followed by each school performing. Finally, everyone sang together in a mass performance at the end of the afternoon.

The programme featured songs from shows including The Greatest Showman and other songs from the popular music repertoire. This event is now established as part of the programme and a great example of how true collaboration can work at its best between schools from the primary and secondary sectors.

Careers Fair

Year 6 pupils joined with Year 8 pupils from Mossley Hollins on Thursday, 28th February at the inaugural Mossley and Carrbrook Schools’ Partnership (MCSP) Careers’ Event. The event gave the pupils important information about career options, the world of work and job opportunities. The pupils also explored the variety of pathways open to them and found out about the skills that are needed to be successful in further education and the world of work.


Mossley's Got Talent

 St George's sent 2 acts - a singing duo from Year 4 and the comedy brothers to participate in the Mossley's Got Talent show held at the George Lawton hall.  We were very proud of both acts.  The evening was won by a Year 7 girl from Mossley Hollins who performed a tap dance routine.
