Welcome to Moorcroft School. We hope that you will find our website interesting and informative but please do contact us if you need any further information.

Moorcroft is a Special School and is part of a multi Academy called The Eden Academy. It is a secondary school for students aged between 11 and 19 years with Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD), Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD) and Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Some of the pupils may also have additional sensory or physical impairments or challenging behaviour.

At Moorcroft we aim to provide the best possible education outcomes for our students. All of our pupils have a "personalised learning programme" to help them achieve their best. This means that we adapt our curriculum to meet the needs of everyone. We also take great pride in helping our young people become more independent so they can meet the many challenges in society.

We work in partnership with parents, other professionals and the wider community. We offer specialist expertise and have some great facilities such as our Sensory World, hydrotherapy pool, Rebound Therapy and the YUS Community Resource Centre. Our building is purpose built and is specially adapted for the needs of our pupils. Being part of the Eden Academy gives us access to high quality professional expertise and excellent resources.
