"I have always been a keen sportsman.  As well as playing rugby and athletics, as a teenager I became interested in outdoor pursuits and won several regional mountain races before turning to Rock Climbing and Mountaineering which remain close to my heart, I am currently the Chairperson of the “Friends of Oaklands” support group.

Mr. J. Sanford

Deputy Head Teacher

Curriculum and Standards


"I moved to Wallasey from London with my family in January 2001 to take up the post of Head of Physics at Weatherhead school; it was 4 years later that I joined The Mosslands School,  initially as Head of Science and then as a member of the leadership team. As a resident of Wallasey I am impressed by the strong sense of community spirit and family values that are also central to our school ethos and are the cornerstone of our success. It is a true pleasure to see our boys grow into fine young men, well equipped to compete against the best in any arena. In my current role as Deputy Headteacher, I have responsibilty for ensuring the highest standards of provision and will use all of the resources available to me to make sure that we secure the best possible outcome for each and every student".

Mrs Coats


Mrs. S. Coats

Assistant Head Teacher



Mrs. Coats is assistant headteacher and member of the humanities department.


“I came to Mosslands School in 1982 which probably makes me one of the longest serving members of staff! I have been lucky in that I have been offered many different challenges from Head of History, acting Head of the Humanities Faculty to various pastoral jobs within the school. In fact I have been a member of each of the three houses at one time or another. Mosslands is a great place to work and I never tire of the good humour shown by our students on a daily basis. My interests are varied but I particularly enjoy walking my two dogs, dancing and baking.”



Mrs A Cassidy

Assistant Head Teacher 

Teaching and Learning


Mrs Cassidy has worked at Mosslands since 2002. She is responsible for all aspects of Teaching and Learning. She is also responsible for the School Direct and PGDE programme within the school.


"I am lucky that I have had a range of responsibilities during my career at Mosslands. I have been a Head of ICT, Assistant Director of DT and Lead Practitioner for Teaching and Learning. I believe that every student has the right to the best educational experience in the classroom. Students should be engaged and challenged in every lesson and given the opportunity to reflect on their learning".
