    What is the partnership with Temple Moor and Royds?

    Brigshaw and Temple Moor High Schools have been working together successfully since 2002. We are delighted that Royds has joined our partnership this year to make it even stronger and increase still further the range of courses available to our students. We are proud to offer courses to suit all kinds of students and are able to have so many different subject combinations due to the fact that we work in partnership. The partnership enables us to put on courses that would only attract small numbers of students if they were offered by each individual centre.  By drawing together these small numbers, we can create larger groups and therefore satisfy more students.  These courses may take place partly in twilight hours, between 3pm and 5pm. We provide free transport to enable students to move between the schools. The partnership also allows staff to share their expertise and for students to experience a different school environment without totally leaving the safety of the one they know well.

    Fantastic resources

    • Our newly refurbished 6th Form Common Room is a wonderful place for 6th Formers to relax, unwind and carry out collaborative group work.
    • Post 16 students also have exclusive use of two other independent study areas supported by personal computers – one exclusively for silent study and one for quiet work.
    • As a post 16 student, you will also be able to access all 6th Form areas at Temple Moor and Royds.
    • There are fantastic facilities across all three schools in the partnership, including state-of-the-art science labs, computer aided design and manufacturing machinery, drama studios and big halls.
