Our community benefits through opportunities provided through our trust partners, the University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield New College, Huddersfield Town Football Club and the Holmfirth Fair Traders Association.

A well-led and extensive programme of lessons, assemblies, and extra-curricular activities promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral and social development well. This is a distinctive strength of the school and has created a positive school culture of mutual respect and understanding.
