Politicians chaired a meeting to hear parents’ concerns about plans for a new ‘super school’.
A proposal to merge three Almondbury schools – Almondbury Junior School, Greenside Infant and Nursery School and Almondbury High School and Language College – is currently being considered.
The 1,220 all-through school would cover nursery to high school for pupils aged three to 16.
Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman and Kirklees Council education chief, Clr Cath Harris, attended a public meeting to hear parents’ views.
Becky Donkersley, one of the organisers of the meeting, said it was unclear if the plan would boost learning or if it was just to save money.
She said: “It was a good meeting, it gave parents an opportunity to tell them what they want.
“We want them to explore all options and not just the one that’s been presented to us.
“A lot of parents feel it’s a done deal and there’s no point in saying anything but we got the feeling they do want to listen.”
Parents have formed a Facebook group to organise their participation in the consultation.
