Thank you for considering applying for a post at Holmfirth High School.

We genuinely believe the school is a wonderful place to work. We have worked hard, and continue to do so, to establish and maintain an ethos in which people – adults and children – support each other, and where relationships are positive, respectful and friendly.

Our most recent Ofsted inspection judged the school to be good with outstanding features. Ofsted have stated:

‘Leaders have established a positive ethos that addresses the academic needs of pupils and promotes their wider personal and social development’ and ‘Senior and Middle leaders have established a dynamic learning culture where high quality training contributes to continuous improvement’.

At Holmfirth High we recognise that our most valuable asset are our staff. We understand that regular high quality personalised professional development training is essential to the success and motivation of our highly skilled professionals. This is achieved through tailored training programmes suited to the career stage of each individual.

We strive to do the best we can for all our students so that they leave here as well-rounded, decent young people who have achieved as highly as possible and have experienced a wide range of opportunities in and out of the classroom. As a school, we seek to provide good developmental opportunities for staff too so that they feel their personal and professional skills are valued and that they are both supported and challenged in their careers.

We are an incredibly busy school with lots going on all year round. We are fortunate in having an exceptional staff group who enthusiastically provide a wealth of extra-curricular activities and experiences for our students to enjoy.

We are a lead school in the West Yorkshire Teaching School Alliance. This means that we work collaboratively and in partnership with a range of other alliances, schools, colleges and universities to share best practice, to train entrants into the profession and to provide exciting professional development for all our staff. Should you choose to apply, you will be sure of a warm welcome and you will be joining a highly committed, professional and friendly staff group.
