About Us

Salendine Nook High School is a unique and very special place. We have a great reputation locally and have a very strong tradition of providing a first-class education to the young people of north-west Huddersfield.

We share our campus with Huddersfield New College and we are a feeder school to this outstanding provider of further education. We also have very strong primary school links. In every sense we are an inclusive and caring community school.

Relationships are at the heart of what we do. Our students are resilient, confident and fully engaged in their learning. Our staff are highly skilled and fully committed to their work. Our parents fully support our students in developing the skills, knowledge and understanding required to succeed. Our Governors are experienced and committed members of the community who support and challenge the school in driving towards our ambitions.

We value aspiration, unity and achievement. Without aspiration one cannot set goals. By celebrating diversity, fostering teamwork and participation, we create the preconditions for success. Our core purpose is to give all the support in order to achieve their unique potential.
