Royds Hall Community School joins SHARE MAT

Royds Hall Community School are set to join our trust

We are delighted to announce that another local school is set to join our trust.

The Regional Schools Commissioner has now confirmed that Royds Hall Community School will be joining the Trust later this year.

John McNally said: “We have already worked successfully with Royds Hall as partners in our Teaching School Alliance. We are delighted to welcome them to the SHARE Multi-Academy Trust and we look forward to working with them even more closely.

“A larger trust brings many benefits.  For example, we should be able to secure better value for money with larger contracts and there will be more opportunities for staff training and development.

“Our experience of leading a Trust over the last three years shows that, in addition to supporting other schools, the quality of education for all our pupils remains at the forefront of our planning.

“This development will enhance our provision further. Our aim as a Trust is to achieve the highest possible standards of care and education across all of our schools.”

Melanie Williams, Executive Head of Royds Hall, said: “The SHARE Trust is already helping hundreds of children and young people to achieve their potential.

“This is an important step forward for our school and will mean we benefit from a wide range of expertise, support and experience.

“We will continue to be Royds Hall Community School and we will continue to play a central role in our local community, which we truly value.

“We have made a number of improvements since our Ofsted inspection. Joining the Trust will give us further support, both in the short term and in securing sustainable longer-term progress.”

Royds Hall Community School is an ‘all-through’ school in Paddock, Huddersfield, which caters for children from nursery and Reception up to the age of 16. It is expected that Royds Hall will formally join the Trust in the autumn, once legal processes have been completed.
