What says..

Small, but, in many ways perfectly formed. The whole place feels loved and cared for, no tatty areas to be seen. Attention to detail is important here – they care, and it shows. According to the children, ‘the teachers here find really fun ways to drill subjects into your head.’ We might struggle a little with the word ‘drill’ but they are all smiles as they say it and we know what they mean.

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.
Set at the foot of Ilkley moor, we make good use of our beautiful location whilst also having the benefit of being an easy walk from the centre of town.
Outstanding teaching from a vibrant and committed staff goes hand in hand with a broad and rich curriculum including exceptional music, plenty of sport, cookery and outdoor learning.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmaster

Since September 2018, Paul Baddeley, previously head of the Lantern Community Primary School in Ely.

Entrance

Twenty children per year group. Most join from nursery and there’s a steady dribble into classes most years if space allows. Girl-heavy throughout, but numbers of boys are increasing each year as the youngest work their way through the school.

Children of all abilities accepted, on the premise that the needs of current pupils are not compromised in any way; ability/needs are assessed informally on a taster day. Some year groups are full (numbers are on the up) but space in other years so do check. Annual open day, but school is open to visitors most days by appointment.
