Northleigh House School was established by a retired couple, Viv and Fred Morgan, in their home in 2012. They were moved by stories of bullying in secondary schools. After looking into the options available to teenagers facing these situations and finding very little available, they decided to create Northleigh. Viv and Fred have given over to the school and its classrooms large part of their former home. Viv and Fred have been awarded in 2015 the Pride of Britain Special Recognition Award for their extraordinary action.
