Hi there Steve, welcome to edugeek!
Everyone's most likely gonna recomment moodle
Moodle.org: open-source community-based tools for learning
But depends if you school has money to spend on it (If we are talking about a school here?)
If so I recommend you look at frog vle
Frog Learning Platform | The UKs most advanced Learning Platform
I wanted our school to use frog, but they said it was too expensive
still dont like moodle much (likely I dont have to really deal with it)
Most people lik it its just me

We currently use Moodle but our Managed Service Provider (MSP) is going to move us to OpenHive, and I think that if you work in a state school and you're going to have a managed service this is something you should bear in mind. We are a few years down the line with Moodle and most staff are now happy using it, their 'big fear' is the change to the new Learning Platform (LP) and will all the work they've put in to producing material for Moodle be thrown away. While I've tried to reassure them that most of it will transfer across without much hassle it would help if the MSP was a little more forthcoming in its support.

Another Moodle user here too but if you can afford to go for Sharepoint you may want to check out this at Twynham School :

Isn't that the M$ showcase school for SharePoint? If so, I'm really REALLY not impressed - thought they would have made more effort than that!

Another vote for Moodle here.
The fact that it integrates with AD is pretty good, unlike RM's offering that they call a VLE . I think it's based on Sharepoint also.
