chool history

Temple Moor High School (pre-Science College) was founded in 1956 as Temple Moor Grammar School, a status it retained until 1973. At its inception, the school was male-only. However, this was later abolished as the times changed, and is currently a mixed gender institution (1992). The school became associated with notable local families, most credibly the DeLacy family, whom are recognized within the Temple Newsam area.

House system

The original houses (Manston, Scargill, Dunstan and DeLacy) all derived their names from local families.

The 2006-2007 term saw the reintroduction of a House System - as part of the 50 year anniversary - with the houses named after stars. The houses colours are on the tie of students from each house (except Sirius, who have a grey tie). The colours are names are:

Feeder schools

As the largest and most popular high school in the area, Temple Moor has a constant income of children from many local primary schools, known as feeder schools. The School has strived to form close working relationships with these primary schools, most notably with Temple Newsam Halton Primary, which is conveniently located opposite the High School.The following schools are the more notable feeder schools for Temple Moor.
*Temple Newsam Halton Primary School
*Crossgates Primary School
*Whitkirk Primary School
*Colton Primary School
*St. Peters Primary School


*The school celebrated its 50th anniversary on October 13, 2006.
*The houses compete in regular competitions - as the school year has just begun, no house competitions have yet been set for the 07-08 school year.
** Year 2006-2007, the house winners were Sirius.
*The original House System featured the names of local families of historial renown: Manston (red), Scargill (white), Dunstan (yellow) and DeLacy (purple). The DeLacy family, for example, is associated with Temple Newsam, an estate and country house, located nearby from which the school derived it's name and also its Templar Cross emblem.
*It is reported as being one of the most over subscribed schools in the country. [ [http://www.crossgatestoday.co.uk/crossgates/Limited-choice-for-Whitkirk-families.3184980.jp Limited choice for Whitkirk families over alternative school places - Crossgates Today ] ]
