Moorfield attracts outstanding new Head

We are delighted that from 1st September 2018, Mr Paul Baddeley will be joining Moorfield as the new Head.

He is already an experienced Headteacher who runs a highly successful school of 450 pupils in Ely, Cambridgeshire.  His approach to leadership, which has always been based on collaboration, innovation and inspiration, has contributed to this success.  

Mr Baddeley was attracted to Moorfield because of our ethos and educational philosophy. He is a firm believer that a school, which places the happiness and wellbeing of the children at its heart, achieves better in all areas. Ofsted said of his current school that 'pupils’ behaviour is exemplary, demonstrated by their attitudes to learning and pride in their work.' We have no doubt that not only will the teaching and learning at Moorfield go from strength to strength but the school’s ethos will also be preserved.  Providing challenging academic standards within a creative learning environment will continue to be the bedrock of our success. 

These are exciting times.
