Welcome to Moat Community College

New Principal Brian Killeen

I am delighted to be joining Moat Community College as Principal.
Moat is an ambitious and nurturing school and is held in high regard in the local community. Our staff and students are rightly proud of what we achieve.
I am looking forward to working with staff, students and the governing body to improve the school’s achievements even further.
Congratulations to all our students on their GCSE results, the hard work pays off!
Good luck in the future. A message from the Principal

Congratulations to Moat students on their GCSE success

Three Moat students received awards from the Bangladesh Youth and Cultural Shomiti Centre for outstanding performance in their GCSEs in 2015.
These awards were given as part of a Memorial Award for Haji Abu Talib, a respected member of the Bangladeshi community.
We are very proud of them and would like to congratulate them.
