All our children throughout the school are in House teams, named after 4 inspirational people. Teachers and staff members reward pupils with Housepoints for displaying positive qualities and attitudes in their work and their behaviour in and around school.

At the end of each term the house with the highest score wins a treat of their choice- anything from an afternoon of Zorbing, an arts and craft afternoon to a movie and popcorn!  




We are proud to be City Connect's First Bike Friendly School in Calderdale.

We raised £126 for the last Poppy Appeal throughout the week leading up to Remembrance Day. A week where we studied what the day stood for and the history of Remebrance Day.



This year, the children chose to support Candlelighters as well as other charities. This is something very close to all our hearts and were proud to raise £172 which will help those who may be affected by cancer.
