Join us as we travel along the Moorlands Way


At Moorlands, we have a simple yet beautiful motto: 'Intrepide!', or 'be brave!' In school we talk about how being brave or intrepid takes many forms. Being brave isn’t always a grand gesture; sometimes it just means ‘having a go’; attempting that difficult question, offering an answer in a lesson when you’re not quite sure - or simply trying something new.

We offer a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment in which this culture of intrepidness can flourish, allowing Moorlands children to be brave and adventurous as they learn and grow.

The Moorlands Way

At Moorlands, our priority is the happiness of our pupils. We want every child to feel safe and secure and endeavour to create a caring, supportive environment that enables each individual to develop and shine.

First Steps

When a child steps through our doors we aim to take them on an exhilarating journey of learning, growth and discovery.

...a bright start

Picking up pace

Moorlanders are encouraged to be independent, critical thinkers with enquiring minds and a love of learning. Throughout, we emphasise the importance of kindness, consideration and respect and maintain high expectations of behaviour and good manners at all times.


Maintaining Momentum

We offer our children many leadership and teamwork opportunities to build their confidence and prepare them for future challenges.

Looking further afield

As our children make their way through Moorlands, we aim to prepare them for life beyond our walls, teaching them that they can have a positive effect on the world around them.

...broadening horizons

Exploring the world


A true all-round education can never be confined to the four walls of a classroom. Moorlands pupils have many opportunities to learn in different environments.

All roads lead home


For a child to be able to make the most of their primary level education, school and family life should work seamlessly together. At Moorlands, we understand that key to this, is offering flexibility and convenience for parents, and a home from home environment for pupil.

All roads lead home


We are conveniently located just off the ring road at Weetwood Lane, North Leeds – hidden away within leafy grounds and away from busy roads, yet easily accessible from Wetherby, Harrogate, Otley and all the northern suburbs of Leeds. School drop off is easy and stress free.

All roads lead home


Children can arrive at school from 7.30am for breakfast and be picked up after tea at 6pm – providing the perfect solution for busy parents. Many of our pupils actually request to stay late so that they can participate in our large selection of after school clubs!

The journey ahead

Pupils leave Moorlands as confident, independent and articulate individuals, ready to face new challenges in true Moorlands style...
