School Prospectus

DCChoosing your child’s secondary school is one of the most important decisions that a parent has to make.

This prospectus will provide you with information that you need in order to help make an informed decision.
We have a very strong academic tradition and, whilst we are fully comprehensive in terms of intake, many of
our students arrive with high attainment from primary school. However, we cater for all ranges of ability and have a very strong Additional Needs provision. Whatever the prior attainment of students, we are committed to maximising the progress made by every student.

Many of our students make exceptional progress and go on to A Level courses at local further education providers. We have very strong links with a number of outstanding providers in the Huddersfield area.

The school has a great reputation in terms of its pastoral provision. We place great emphasis on the emotional wellbeing and safety of every child in our care. Equally, we demand the very highest standards of behaviour and positive attitudes to learning in all of our students. Our students are happy and safe in school.

They are also completely free from disruption in their learning. Our extra-curricular programme is extensive and diverse. There really is something for everybody. We simply ask that once your child joins us, that they become actively involved in our enrichment activities and try out new

Perhaps our greatest strength lies in the experience, skill, knowledge and dedication of the staff. Many staff are local to the community and there is a real passion to see our students achieve the very highest of standards throughout their journey at our school.

If you missed our Open Evening and are interested in joining us, please feel free to make an appointment to see me or one of our team. Contact details can be found at the back of this prospectus.
