In Kirklees, we are proud to occupy three, central and bespoke properties. All are a short walking distance from both the bus station and train station.

Our KS4 provision is located at our Greenhead Road site.  A detached three-storey property that creates a homely feel for our young people, whilst allowing us to keep our group sizes small and nurturing.

Our KS5 provision is based in Huddersfield town centre at Union Bank Yard. We occupy the top floor of a three-storey building which houses two classrooms and a calm space.

We have a dedicated vocational space at CANTEEN which is also on Greenhead Road.

This is where we feed all our young people. They also access vocational tasters in Hospitality and Catering and Hair and Beauty.
