Our school is noted for its family atmosphere and warm, welcoming, supportive environment. It is an inclusive community where a child in Form 1 can approach a 6th Form student without feeling intimidated; where differences are appreciated, not made fun of; and where relations between students and teachers are marked by mutual respect and cooperation. It is this that gives our students the confidence to try new things, to take risks and to give their all. Newcomers, whether students or teachers, always find this highly refreshing and settle in very quickly.
We believe that the values ingrained in students at a young age will stay with them through their lives and want to send out students who we know we will be proud of throughout their lives. We aim to instil in all our students the confidence to stand up for what they believe in, to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves and to consider the needs of others above their own.
Elizabeth Moir School nurtures individuals and gives all students the confidence to be themselves, free from peer pressure and the need to conform. By treating students like adults, capable of making their own decisions rather than just being told what to do, we encourage them to act like adults and to take responsibility for the consequences of their actions. Our students work because they want to, not because they have to, and they adhere to rules because they understand their importance, not out of fear of punishment.
