Welcome to Royds Hall Community School!
Royds Hall Community School is a successful and over-subscribed school which encompasses Royds Hall Secondary, Royds Hall Primary and Beech Primary on its own site; currently catering for approximately 1100 students aged 3 - 16, with a national reputation for innovation and excellence. In collaboration with the local authority and as a result of a shortage of school places in the local area we became a Through School from September 2014, when we welcomed our first intake of 30 reception children. Initial provision for this first class is in our main building, with a new purpose-built one-form entry primary school scheduled to be built on our site during the coming year. The primary phase will then grow to 210 students by September 2016 and 420 in September 2020.
We are the Kirklees Specialist Provision Hub for students with Speech, Language and Communication Need. Our school is enriched by its diversity. Approximately 40 per cent of students are from various ethnic minorities and, with more than 26 languages and 30 countries represented in school; we take great pride in our role at the heart of the local community.
We are an active Co-operative Trust school and our community benefits through excellent links with our trust partners, The Science Centre at Sheffield Hallam University, Huddersfield New College, Huddersfield Town Football Club, Holmfirth Fair Traders Association and the University of Huddersfield. We are delighted that two of our local primary schools joined the trust in May 2014, enabling our new primary phase to work collaboratively to share best practice.
We are delighted to have:
- Happy, confident and aspirational students who express a real pride in their school
- Expert staff an all areas with a passion for learning and a determination to ensure all children grow and achieve in a safe and nurturing environment
- Calm and purposeful classrooms
- Excellent partnerships between students, staff, parents, governors and community
- A forward-thinking and innovative approach to teaching and learning throughout the school
