I came across this story via a segment on the BBC’s ‘One Show‘ on Tuesday 23rd. January. Seeking more information I was surprised by an apparent lack of coverage in other UK media. I found this article, from 2015, in an Australian newspaper. That seems to be based around the couple’s ‘Pride of Britain’ award that year. Scroll down the linked page to find them under ‘Special Recognition’ (theirs is the third such award listed).
So, what is it all about? Six years ago Vivienne Morgan read about a teenager who had committed suicide after having been bullied at school. Vivienne was 68 at the tiime, and her husband 91. She decided to open a school dedicated to the care and education of children experiencing anxiety. With no knowledge or experience of education or child care she set about recruiting specialist staff, securing the necessary approval from various authorities and opened the school in her home.
You can learn more about the school from its website or by following the links I’ve provided above.
The Core Values Northleigh House seeks to promote in its students are: positive self-esteem, confidence in one’s own judgement, self-reliance, ambition and compassion, and independence.
