Who's Who

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.

Our school choir sang at Miss Carroll's wedding in 2017. We visited the beautiful Stanley St Andrew's Church to practise. We made Miss Carroll cry. We would just like to say, Miss Carroll, it is all about you.
