FARTOWN High School has announced three partners who have joined its new Trust governors.
The existing school will close at the end of August, and a new school will open on the same Fartown site.
It will be managed by a newly-established Trust led by the governing body of Holmfirth High School.
Last month Kirklees Council’s Cabinet backed the Holmfirth bid to establish a new school on the site of Fartown High in September after beating off opposition from two rival bidders.
The Trust members originally announced were the University of the First Age, Cummins Turbo Technologies, Kirklees Active Leisure and Parents of Black Children Association.
Now the new Trust partners will be Kirklees College, Huddersfield Pakistani Community Alliance and Deighton and Brackenhall Initiative, an award-winning organisation which works to improve the quality of life for local residents through regeneration projects.
Dr Andy Williams, executive headteacher of both Fartown and Holmfirth High Schools, said: “The value of these additional Trust members is in broadening the range of partners which will in turn bring additional capacity to the organisation.
“We are extremely fortunate to have attracted the support and interest of these groups and they are already contributing ideas and practical support.”
Dr Williams said the school had been completely “overwhelmed” by the level of support and interest in the project which aims to create an outstanding school for north Huddersfield.
He said pupils, parents, staff and the wider community and organisations had demonstrated their desire to work together to create a school of great potential and one which will be recognised for lead practice and for being at the centre of the community it serves.
“In these times of hardship and reduction in services it demonstrates the value of working together,” said Dr Williams.
A public meeting is being held at the school to the Trust school on Thursday at 6.30pm. Members of the local community are being urged to attend.
