THREE Kirklees schools could be extended because of high demand for places.
Kirklees councillors have said they need to consider extra accommodation at Holmfirth High, Whitcliffe Mount High at Cleckheaton and Shelley High and Sixth Form Centre.
The council is considering extending the schools because of pressure on space and a forecast rise in pupil numbers.
The council announced its schemes in its School Organisation Plan, an outline of how it will expand popular services, provide enough school places and maintain standards between now and 2008.
The council also wants to review accommodation at Westborough High School in Dewsbury, King James's School at Almondbury, Salendine Nook High School and Royds Hall High School, Paddock.
Also, a curriculum analysis will be conducted at all schools in Kirklees.
It will assess whether schools have enough appropriate spaces and facilities to deliver the curriculum for the next five years.
The council can then decide how much and what kind of extra space will be needed at Holmfirth, Whitcliffe Mount and Shelley.
Feasibility studies will then be conducted into extending these schools, says Kirklees.
