Ofsted and Performance

We are very proud of our two Ofsted reports, both of which judged Mossbourne to be ‘outstanding’ – in terms of behaviour, structure, culture, ICT, parent satisfaction and, of course, academic achievement, which the second report judged to be ‘amongst the very highest in the country’. 

It even went so far as to acknowledge that, of all the schools judged ‘outstanding’, Mossbourne is an ‘exceptional’ example.

Music Specialism

With Music as our specialism, we invest in the sort of support that lifts our musicians to their highest possible levels: state-of-the-art music suites, recording studios, practice rooms and an extensive scholarship programme. 

Over 250 young musicians of all ages enjoy subsidised Instrumental Music lessons which supplement the engaging Music curriculum. Performances throughout the year, featuring our School Bands, Samba Bateria, Senior Choir, Key-Stage 3 Chorus, string quartets, smaller bands and individual performers, take place on and off the premises. Recent highlights include the Lord Mayor’s Show and Leeds Arena with Andrea Bocelli, for example.

In recognition of this consistent level of excellence, Mossbourne was recently granted an award by the Mayor of Hackney for Excellence in Music Education.
