What the school says...

At Moorfield we achieve the rare balance between academic rigour and creating a fun, friendly and caring environment where boys and girls can thrive. Pupils are nurtured as individuals and develop the personal confidence to be successful. All pupils proceed to their first choice of senior school.

A breath of fresh air, she is warm, hugely enthusiastic and ambitious for her school and pupils. Seems to have won over hearts and minds with her ‘I can achieve anything’ approach to life and learning. Nurture and academic rigour both sit...
