Who's Who at Morley School
Morley Primary is a small school with 3 mixed age classes. Our children spend at least 2 years with each of their teachers. Our staff delight in seeing how eager the children are to come to school each morning.
Morley staff won an award for excellence in the Pearson National Teaching awards in 2016. This is because they are all amazing, and work incredibly hard to give our children the very best they can.
