Welcome to Moorside Primary Academy

Thank you for visiting our school website, we warmly welcome your interest in our school. Moorside is a lively, urban school in the east Manchester town of Droylsden. We serve over 450 pupils, providing education for children aged 3 to 11. The atmosphere in school is relaxed and friendly, purposeful and busy. We have an active interest in self-improvement, and we firmly believe in the principle that ‘we can always be better’.

Hopefully our website captures an insight into our school, as it gives us an opportunity to share with you some of the experiences and successes enjoyed by all of our children. Every child at Moorside is at the heart of what we do, and we put in considerable effort to help our pupils to achieve and to enjoy their time here. All of our children are taught to work hard and to be respectful of others, and along with the rest of our school community, they make Moorside what it is: happy, friendly and inclusive.If you are considering sending your child to Moorside, you are welcome to make an appointment to view the school.I hope you will find the site helpful and useful. We always welcome views on how to improve the site, and any feedback is appreciated. If you would like further information, please contact our admin team in the School Office.

Principal: Mr P. Dickson
