Barnfield Moorlands Free School
Barnfield Moorlands Free School opened, in partnership with the Barnfield Federation, under the Academies Free School programme in September 2011.
A former independent preparatory school, Barnfield Moorlands is now a non-profit making, independent, state-funded primary school, based in Leagrave Hall, Luton.
Since joining forces with Moorlands, Barnfield has invested significant amounts of money upgrading IT equipment for the children to use to support learning and have plans for further investment upgrading classrooms, gardens and play areas.
The school roll of 287 pupils will rise to 378 in 2012. In 2013/14 the school will move to a new site within the Luton Educational Authority catchment area and, in doing so, will increase in size to 504 pupils.
By 2014 Barnfield will have invested around £4.5 million to create a brand new Moorlands school.
Moorlands vision is to help all its pupils develop lively, enquiring minds with an ability to challenge and argue rationally and thus successfully apply themselves to tasks, physical skills, and literacy and numeracy goals.
Barnfield Moorlands Free School will retain its key unique features of small class sizes, a tailored approach to learning and an emphasis on life skills including the importance of courtesy and respect.
The school is already renowned for its traditional values and high educational standards and will remain committed to reflecting the needs of its community.
