A head teacher has pledged to create an outstanding school in Fartown.
Dr Andy Williams spoke out as Fartown High School was officially re-named the North Huddersfield Trust School.
The school will officially come into existence at the start of the new academic year with children walking through the gates of the newly-named school for the first time.
Dr Williams said the curriculum aimed to strike a balance between offering a full range of English baccalaureate subjects for students who aspired academically, while expanding the range of vocational courses available so courses could be tailored to students’ individual needs.
The school had its hopes of a new building dashed when the government axed the Building Schools for the Future Programmed last year. Dr Williams said aspirations for a new building remained and it would be very exciting if that could happen, but what the trust would be concentrating on now would be delivering a quality education for the community which it served.
He said that the new Fartown School would be really interesting and exciting project and they really mean to do it justice.
This trust school has a governing body which employs the school’s staff and has primary responsibility for admission arrangements.The school’s land and buildings are owned by the governing body or by a charitable foundation. It has formal links between partners but it continues to be funded by the local authority.
