School Facilities

Salendine Nook High School is an 11-16 community comprehensive school established in 1973,   
when secondary education in Huddersfield was re-organised.  The School is housed in the former Salendine Nook Secondary School and Huddersfield High School buildings.

Currently the Governors have submitted an application to the DfE to convert to become an Academy.  This has been accepted and the intention is that the school will convert on 1st December 2011.  There will be no change to the ethos or culture of the school and no change to admissions, holidays, school times or the curriculum from what is printed in this prospectus.

The School shares a site with Huddersfield New College which caters for sixth form students.  The campus is situated on the western side of Huddersfield, two miles from the town centre and about a mile from Exits 23 and 24 of the M62 motorway.

There are many facilities on the campus:  acres of playing fields, an indoor heated swimming pool, an athletics track, tennis courts and an astroturf all-weather pitch.  The School has specialist rooms for all aspects of technology, art, music and drama, ten laboratories for Science, a library / resource centre and two gymnasia.   There are five computer rooms with a network linked to other rooms and resources room for reprographics.

There are currently 1313 pupils on roll, 90 teaching staff and 67 support staff.  At all times, the Staff at Salendine Nook High aim to create a happy and purposeful atmosphere in which pupils can develop their academic and social potential.
