Meet the Head

Head Teacher, Jacqueline Atkinson joined Moorlands in February 2017.

Jacky came to the school from her post as Deputy Head at St Michael’s School, Leigh-on-Sea and has also taught at Highfield Prep, Harrogate,  The British School in Tokyo, The Chorister School, Durham and Yarm School. She is an accomplished organist and pianist and trained at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.

Jacky arrived at an exciting time for Moorlands School as an Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) inspection had recently yielded outstanding results.

I was delighted to join Moorlands School at such positive time and the school has gone from strength to strength. As a school, Moorlands is the ideal size – large enough to have great facilities but small enough for each child to be known and nurtured to be the best that they can be. The ISI Inspectors picked up on the intrinsic qualities which make Moorlands such a unique place: the outstanding pastoral care; the breadth of education and our pupils’ achievement in all areas of school life. The school’s motto ‘Intrepide’ is a constant thread in the diverse cultural, creative, sporting and musical activities on offer. We will continue building on this excellent foundation for the future success of the school and I look forward to exciting times ahead.

I do hope that our website communicates what Moorlands is all about. We always welcome families to come and look around the school to get a real feel of the place. If you would like to do this, please contact our Admissions Team. We look forward to meeting you!
