We support young people aged 11-18 to progress and succeed in their education and employment.

We support young people aged 11-18 years with a maximum number of 12 students to progress and succeed in their education.

WELCOME

“Our vision is to support young people to access education through the offer of a safe, positive, and nurturing environment in which they can grow academically, socially and emotionally.”

It is with pleasure that I offer you a warm welcome to Moorfield Learning Centre.

From September, I will be stepping into the role of Headteacher and I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to lead such a special and unique school.


I look forward to working with the knowledgeable and experienced staff team at Moorfield to provide our young people with a safe space for academic, social and emotional growth. Our small numbers mean that we are able to offer a bespoke and personalised educational experience for our learners – this is what really sets us apart. Everyone at Moorfield endeavours to ensure that every young person receives the support they need to thrive in school and beyond.


I also look forward to working with our talented outreach staff, who do an incredible job of providing young people with the opportunity to re-engage with education. Working from our learning hubs, the outreach team support young people from local schools to access educational provision, with a view to re-integrating them into school.


Together, we are committed to making every young person’s school experience the best it can possibly be. I look forward to leading the team to shape bright futures for our learners at Moorfield Learning Centre.


Kind Regards,

Vicky Niblo

Headteacher
