Happy pupils make good learners
Holmfirth High school, in Heys Road, boasts one of the best attendance records in Kirklees – in fact it ranks highly in the UK.
The school puts this down to having happy, contented and safe children who enjoy their schooldays.
There are six guiding principles for education and learning at the school which are: Attendance, Behaviour, Classroom, Extra-Curricular, Environment and Enjoyment.
Consideration and respect for others in school, as well as good manners, are of paramount importance at Holmfirth High School. After all, they say, if teachers can spend their time teaching in a well-ordered and disciplined environment, pupils are more likely to learn, achieve their goals and their ambitions.
But pupils are also encouraged to take part in trips, competitions and other experiences outside school time – something they say can be as valuable and rewarding as their more formal lessons in the classroom.
Come along and see for yourself, at the open evening on October 5. Find out more about the school by visiting their website here.
