Calling All Former Students

Calling All Former Students

If you’re a former student of Holmfirth High School, we want to hear from you!

Your experiences since leaving could help to motivate and inspire our current students to feel more confident in making decisions about their future. We’d love you to join our alumni network and stay connected with the school.

We’ve partnered with the national education charity Future First, who specialise in helping schools like ours to stay connected with their former students.

You can choose how and when you help – perhaps you can act as a career and education role model, provide work experience, become a mentor in person or online, or help with donations, fundraising or even apply to become a governor.

It doesn’t matter when you left us, whether you’re in further education or employment, whether you still live nearby or have moved further away, there are still ways you can help.

In order to sign up, just follow this link and fill in the online form – we promise it will only take a couple of minutes. networks.futurefirst.org.uk/signup/holmfirth

A busy week for the MFL department! 

Our Spanish Exchange students have enjoyed the sunshine in Altafulla. They experienced life in Spain and used their language skills everyday.

We also welcomed the German Exchange from the Wilhelm-Bracke Gesamtschule in Braunschweig. Their first visit was a trip to Leeds, where they enjoyed the beautiful Springlike weather and visited the Royal Armouries, the Corn Exchange, markets and even found time for shopping. Their other visits included York and Whitby. Time was spent with the host families at the weekend and the pupils experienced a full day at Holmfirth High School. Viel Spass!

To the HHS community:
Nach einem sehr langen, aber unproblematischen Anreisetag am Mittwoch starteten wir am Donnerstag mit unserer Besichtigung der schönen Stadt Leeds bei herrlichem Frühlingswetter. Neben Royal Armouries, Corn Exchange, City Markets blieb auch noch genügend Zeit zum Bummeln. Kein Stau auf der Rückfahrt zur HHS in diesem Jahr!

Thriving Kirklees Messaging Service

Thriving Kirklees Messaging Service

Thriving Kirklees Messaging Service is a text messaging service for young people to receive confidential health advice.

The service will not pass on anything you say to anyone else, like parents, teachers, or other students – unless you say it’s ok to do that.

Young people can simply text 07520618866 and the service will aim to reply to you within one working day.

To stop the healthcare service from sending messages text STOP.

Community Hub

The school works in partnership with a number of other schools from across the Holme Valley area as part of the Holmfirth Community Hub to explore how we can collectively build stronger, supportive communities. The Hub is looking at new ways which it can support families, residents and other organisations. We would kindly ask that parents/carers take a few moments to complete this short questionnaire of 5 questions to help in our future discussions around the needs of the Holmfirth community.
