Helping you be all that you can be

Our Open Day is on Wednesday 29th November for prospective parents and pupils, please contact us to make an appointment. 


Welcome to our website. We do hope that you find all of the information that you need.

We strive to provide a caring, creative and challenging learning environment in which all our children can thrive and succeed.

In September 2017 we joined The Calder Learning Trust, building on the successes of both Cragg Vale Junior and Infant School and Calder High School, who were the top performing Primary and Secondary schools in Calderdale in 2016, providing high quality education for pupils from 4-18 years in two phases: Calder Primary and Calder High. 

We are excited for the future of The Calder Learning Trust: building a new outstanding sixth form and creating our permanent Primary phase building. 

Our school motto is ‘helping you be all that you can be’ and we ensure that each pupil is valued and supported in their learning to achieve their full potential. We offer a varied and exciting curriculum which meets the different needs of our pupils and enables them to develop their talents and skills to the highest levels. 

We are proud of our school community of staff, governors, pupils and parents who all work together to secure the best opportunities and outcomes for our pupils.

Our most recent OFSTED in October 2016 confirmed that Cragg Vale continues to be a good school. In 2016 and 2017 we achieved results significantly above the local and national averages as well as pupils making excellent progress. 

I invite you to visit our school; meet our pupils and staff and find out more about our happy and successful school and our plans for the future.
