Daniel Bellanfante - Vice Principal
Daniel is a former student of Moor End Academy. After leaving the school as a student, Daniel went on to study at Huddersfield New College where he pursued his passion for sport and physical education at A-Level. He then went on to graduate from Leeds Trinity University with a 1st class honours degree in Sport Development and Secondary Education.

Upon completing his year as an ETA, Daniel then went on to complete his teacher training at the academy, before honing his skills as an NQT at an alternative high performing school. Daniel’s passion and affiliation towards the Academy is emphasised with his current role as a Vice Principal, in which promoting positive behaviour around the Academy is at the forefront of his daily routine. Daniel enjoys developing students’ resilience and understanding of what is required to overcome barriers, so Moor End Academy students can become the leaders of tomorrow.
