Parents have been invited to have their say on plans to turn a high school into an ‘all-through’ super school.

Royds Hall High School in Paddock currently caters for 860 pupils aged 11 to 16.

But Kirklees Council has proposed adding 210 places for pupils aged four to 11 over seven years.

The plan has been devised to address a shortage of primary school places in western Huddersfield.

Parents, residents and other concerned groups can take part in the consultation by post or online until December 20.

A number of public consultation meetings will also be scheduled.

A spokesperson for Kirklees Council said: “Royds Hall High School is currently attended by 11 to 16-year-olds. The proposal is to create primary places for reception class children upwards.

“They would complement existing provision in the area and would be in addition to the places already available in other schools. The reason for the proposal is to meet the increasing need for primary school places in the local area.

“If the changes were agreed, there would be a physical expansion of the current Royds Hall facilities in Luck Lane, Paddock.

“Similar all-through schools have been created across the country”.
