Looking for a primary school place for September 2022?


If so, come to one of our open afternoons!

We’re hosting three:

  • Monday 11 October 2021, 4.00 – 5.00 pm
  • Thursday 11 November 2021, 4.00 – 5.00 pm
  • Friday 03 December 2021, 9.30 – 10.30 am (to be confirmed, depending on Covid precautions)


There’s no need to book an appointment – just turn up on the day. It’s after school for Covid reasons, but teachers will still be around to direct you around school and answer any questions you may have. Watch this Leeds guide to applying for a place.


Moortown Primary is a happy and healthy place to learn. It’s a wonderful school tucked away in Moortown, North Leeds.

Ofsted judge us to be outstanding and our Key Stage 2 SAT results are amongst the highest in the country: consistently over 90% of our children attain nationally expected levels or higher and make expected progress or better.


If you’d like a paper copy of any information contained on our website, or any information referred to, please ask (there is no charge for this).

We are very much a ‘family’ school: we cultivate and nurture attitudes of support, respect and care in all our activities and relationships and for all our children. Equally important is learning. We set high standards in everything we do and strongly believe in the importance of the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics.

At Moortown, we also believe that primary school education is an experience that all children should enjoy to the full. We therefore offer a broad and balanced curriculum. The multi-cultural dimension of our school’s community is another strength: we celebrate our many diverse backgrounds. This helps our children to become positive and active citizens.

This website – with its photos, children’s work, quotes, and news updates – should give you a picture of life at Moortown Primary School but do please come and see the school at work and discover how your child could thrive here.
