King James's School

Principal's Welcome

Thank you for taking an interest in our school. King James's School is an extremely popular and successful 11-16 mixed comprehensive, serving south-eastern Huddersfield and surrounding villages.

The essence of our school is built around three Hs:

  • our distinguished History;
  • our Holistic provision, which develops students both academically and pastorally;
  • our High expectations and aspirations. 

Our ethos, summarised in the King James’s Way, demands the best from everyone through key values: 

  • Kindness and compassion,
  • Inclusion and tolerance,
  • Nurture and innovation,
  • Greatness and aspiration.   

Our highly professional staff share a passion for learning and a determination to inspire and support all our students to be successful and to develop into confident young adults ready for life after King James's.
