Our Ethos and Values

Royds Hall Community School is an inclusive, open-minded school, passionate about our students and positive about the future. We are dedicated to ensuring all students leave Royds Hall fully equipped with the life skills, experiences and educational outcomes to have a happy and successful future. Our students are guided by committed and inspiring professionals, in a supportive environment. Our students are given the room to express and challenge themselves, because we believe every young person can succeed.

We insist on high expectations for every student in their work, behaviour and personal development. This allows us to provide the best educational experience for all. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in the school and hope you have felt the warmth and genuine interest in your family during your visit. If you decide to choose Royds Hall for the next step in your son/daughter’s educational journey, we are committed to ensuring your child enjoys school, has a positive experience and achieves their personal best in everything they do.

We are part of SHARE Multi-Academy Trust and our trust’s core values are ‘Valuing People, Supporting Personal Best’.
It means we want every one of our students and members of staff to enjoy coming to our schools and for all of us to try our very best in everything we do. Our school is a safe, positive environment where every pupil is encouraged to achieve their personal potential and helped to overcome obstacles.

We believe that helping people feel valued increases the chances of them achieving their personal best; the highest standard we can expect anyone to achieve. This requires us to set ambitious goals for every student and to help them to achieve them.

We aim to help everybody gain the knowledge, skills and habits that can lead to a happy and successful life.
