FARTOWN High School will hold its final celebration this evening.

Students, parents and guests will gather at Huddersfield Town Hall for the event.

The school closed at the end of this term and re-opens as the North Huddersfield Trust School in September.

The celebration evening starts with a performance from the school’s steel band and will also include awards for high achieving students across a range of subject areas.

Awards will also be given for attainment, effort and progress.

Special recognition for outstanding progress and commitment to learning will be given to year seven students Maryam Ahmed and Connor Roebuck; Paige Mawson and William Goggins in year eight; year nine students Sahar Ali and Courtney Smith and Iqra Saeed and Brendan Turley in year 10.

Executive headteacher Dr Andy Williams said: “The evening is all about celebrating the successes of our amazing students and the school itself.

“It’s going to be a very happy evening to celebrate the end of a great year and also the end of an era for Fartown High School.

“We are looking forward to opening North Huddersfield Trust School to students on (Wednesday) September 7.”

The school is compiling a year book. Memories of the school can be sent to:
