Mossley and Carrbrook Partnership
The partnership between Mossley Hollins High School, Milton St John, Micklehurst All Saints, St George’s, St Joseph's, Livingstone and Buckton Vale Primary Schools was established in January 2012 and continues to flourish providing so many extra opportunities for our children.
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.

Examples of Events held together
The Big Sing
This event takes place at Mossley Hollins with 180 students in attendance from six schools all belonging to MCSP. All participants start the afternoon with a warm up followed by each school performing. Finally, everyone sings together in a mass performance at the end of the afternoon.
The programme features 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.
Year 6 pupils joined with Year 8 pupils from Mossley Hollins at the Mossley and Carrbrook Schools’ Partnership (MCSP) Careers’ Event. The event gives the pupils important information about career options, the world of work and job opportunities. The pupils also explore the variety of pathways open to them and find out about the skills that are needed to be successful in further education and the world of work.
All schools send KS2 children to take part in an inter-school sports competition. Events include long jump, javelin, skipping race, sack race and sprint. Points are added to a school total and the school with the highest points is awarded a trophy
