Information on our School

Spen Valley High School serves the areas of Liversedge and Heckmondwike in West Yorkshire; it is a eight-form entry, co-educational school, which caters for students between the ranges of 11 to 16.  We currently have 950 students on roll.  Our catchment area is principally owner-occupied housing with a smaller proportion of established council housing.  Almost 17% of the student intake is from minority ethnic groups (around 11% are from families originating from Pakistan).  Almost 29% of our students are entitled to support through the Pupil Premium and 27% are currently eligible for free school meals.  The school takes pride in being connected to the community it serves and is seeking to foster stronger links with local community organisations.  Parents are supportive of the school and the school is always looking to further engage families in the learning process.  We are a highly collaborative organisation, involved with partnership development across North Kirklees.  The school was a key player in forming the Spenborough Co-operative Trust alongside five primary schools and a special school. 

Spen Valley High School is not yet outstanding nor is it complacent.  It is relentless in its drive to move forward with priorities which are rooted in improving outcomes for students and are fuelled by partnership working of all stakeholders.
