Mossley and Carrbrook Schools' Partnership
The partnership between Mossley Hollins High School, Milton St John's, Micklehurst All Saints, St George’s, St Joseph's, Livingstone and Buckton Vale Primary Schools was established in January 2012 and is presently flourishing.
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.
