      The school production of Annie was absolutely fabulous! Having seen the show on Thursday night I was very impressed by the whole production; the acting, the singing, the dancing, the lighting and the staging was of such a high standard it felt as though you were at a national theatre production.  The level of professionalism was high.  The performance to a packed audience was given rapturous applause.  Everyone involved deserves praise and congratulations with some moving performances by the main cast of characters - but special mention has to go to Jenny,  Ellie and Tyler brilliantly supported by Devon, Tom, James and "orphan" Abi! My special thanks to our members of staff whose commitment is fantastic - Especially Mrs  Robinson - Marsh, Mrs Jackson, Mr Parish, Mr Roebuck, Mrs Graham, Mrs Davison, Mrs Armitage and of course Miss Gaukroger whose enthusiasm and professionalism is great! Many thanks too for the support and encouragement of all our parents.

  • Community

    • Good community links add relevance and interest to students’ work. We have strong business links and work closely with voluntary groups, our local primary schools and other organisations. Our growing partnership with local providers is a real strength.

      We are keen to be ‘community partners’. Students and staff are active members of local focus groups and attend local forums. As the lead secondary school within the Shipley Achieving Success (SAS) partnership we are proactive in our support with young people and their families. Our Extended School provision is wide ranging and offers opportunities to engage in after school and holiday clubs together with a wide range of workshops.
