Welcome to Moorlands View School

David Joy

Welcome from the Head Teacher

I am delighted to welcome you to Moorlands View. Our school provides a safe, secure, positive and supportive environment which is caring, consistent and fair, irrespective of gender, disability and background. We support pupils in acquiring the knowledge, skills and understanding relevant to adult life and employment/further education.


Moorlands View School aims to: 1. develop the pupil’s self-respect, self-confidence and self-reliance with a sense of loyalty and honesty; have the ability to form positive personal relationships in order to live and work with sensitivity and mutual respect. 2. develop lively enquiring minds with the ability to question and reason, acquire knowledge, creative and practical skills, developing these skills to the highest potential for each pupil. 3. effectively deliver all the requirements of a differentiated National Curriculum.

What sets us apart from other schools

At Moorlands View School our focus is on learning to enjoy education and making it a memorable, happy experience with us. Lessons are not always classroom based, as the school goes out on trips and pupils take part in physical activities on a weekly basis. We will always attempt to give pupils new experiences and encourage team building exercises.


Moorlands View is a mixed school for pupils aged 7-16 years that display SEMH, attachment disorders, autism, criminal behaviours or are victims of Child Sexual Exploitation.

Areas of expertise

We specialise in English and Maths, from single unit awards to Entry level, to Functional skills, to GCSE. All pupils gain certification in these areas whatever their level on arrival. Pupils can then access other qualifications with more enthusiasm knowing they have a higher skills level.
