Headteacher's Message

 Welcome to our website – I hope you find it useful but please do not hesitate to contact me if you can’t find what you are looking for. 


I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of the Primary Phase at our school, the very first through-school from 4-16 in Calderdale.  We opened with our first cohort of children starting in Reception in September 2014 and have now grown to have pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.


I have been a Headteacher for over 17 years and I have to say that these have been the smoothest starts to a school year I have known.  Our pupils have settled in wonderfully and from the first day have come in happily and  are excited to be at school.  They are so busy enjoying learning together and are already making super progress which, together with the excellent progress students make in our Secondary phase, means that we have much to celebrate.
