The Mount School

3 Binham Rd, Huddersfield HD2 2AP, UK – 01484 426432

Lovely prep school. Small class sizes and a great teaching team that treats kids as individuals. We have 2 kids there and both are very happy.

The Mount School is one of the true hidden gems of Huddersfield, My children have attended this school for many years, what I value most about the school is that I know my children are treated with kindness and respect in an relaxed environment where they find it easy to learn. A truly positive experience I would highly recommend this school to others

The Brooksbank School

Victoria Rd, Elland HX5 0QG, UK – 01422 374791

After reviewing all secondary schools within Kirklees and calderdale, talking to many parents whose children attend other schools and seeing for myself the behavior of many pupils from a wide variety of schools I can say this maybe not the best school of all but it certainly ranks well within the top six (and that in itself is an achievement). My daughter has flourished since she started this school six years ago, it has been well worth the 16 miles round trip everyday to get her there. What I will emphasize is if a pupil is un-willing to put any effort into their education they should go else where. The teachers at this school can spot a desire to learn and potential a mile off and do all they can to develop this. A great school.
