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.

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.

Her BA, which she did at York, is in English and theology.

Originally hailing from Yorkshire, it’s perhaps no surprise that her interests include walking on the moors and dales, the only requisite being a tea shop somewhere along the...
