About the training provider

Heckmondwike Grammar School is a mixed, selective Academy of over 1500 pupils including 600 in the sixth form. It is a fantastic place to work and learn. A school should be judged not only on it's examination results or it's facilities but also the fitness of it's pupil's to succeed in later life. We think we serve our pupils well. More importantly so do others, including Ofsted, who judged the school to be outstanding on their last visit, and the various newspapers who regularly include us in their lists of the most high-performing schools.

HGS is a school in which pupils feel happy and safe and are challenged and supported to achieve the highest possible academic standards. They are encouraged to participate and excel in a wide range of creative, sporting and cultural fields. They develop the skills and qualities that will make them healthy, adaptable, responsible citizens of the future, and enable them to make a profound contribution.

A former training school, HGS has a long established track record of training teachers and working with HEI providers, and we recognise the benefits that trainees can offer a school. We provide a unique school based learning opportunity in partnership with the Kirklees and Calderdale SCITT in conjunction with Huddersfield University. Our teachers are outstanding practitioners ready to share their knowledge and expertise with the next generation of teachers.
