The academic life of the School is organised by faculties. Each subject and academic activity, which has its own Head of Department or Subject Leader, is placed into one of seven faculties.
Each faculty is led by a Head of Faculty who is responsible for all aspects of the delivery of the subjects within the Faculty. The Heads of Faculty, led by the Deputy Principal, Curriculum form the Curriculum Management Team.
In Moira House, the Subject Leaders and ultimately the Head of Faculty is responsible for the subjects in the faculty across all the Key Stages, 1 to 5, in which the subject is delivered. This model is a reflection on the school’s commitment to a seamless journey for the girls from Nursery through to A level. The faculties, together with the subjects they contain, are listed below:
