At the end of term (Commem) 1908, R.T. Temple exhibited a study in chalk from casts in the annual exhibition held in the Art School. In July 1909, the School Archaeological Society noted that 'Mr Temple Moore FRIBA has kindly sent us a paper on 'Gothic Styles in Modern Architecture' which will be read at the Business Meeting in September'. In November 1910, the Archaeological Society announced that 'An expedition is proposed to Trent Manor House to see the rooms in which Charles II hid in 1651. For seeing or photographing the Church a small extra fee will be charged, owing to the needs of the Restoration Fund. The restoration of the tower and spire is at present in progress, under Mr Temple Moore, FRIBA, Hon. President of the Society.' At the official opening of the Carrington Building and Westcott Art School on 11 November 1910, an exhibition of work was put on in the Art School, at which 'a notable addition was some striking designs for a large church and vicarage by R. Temple Moore, son of the Archaeological Society's Honorary President, who has just gone up to Cambridge: these drawings confirm our expectations that as an architect he will prove a worthy pupil of his illustrious father.'
