New Mill Schools are situated between the village of New Mill and the town of Holmfirth, both located in the heart of the beautiful Holme Valley which is just north of the Peak District in West Yorkshire. We are very lucky to have our schools situated in such beautiful surroundings.
The schools are based on two separate, but nearby, sites. They share a Headteacher and Governing Body and work closely together.
Both schools recently became part of the Learning Accord Multi Academy Trust, which is made up of six primary schools in Kirklees: New Mill Infant School, New Mill Junior School, Helme C of E Academy, Scissett CE Academy, Skelmanthorpe Academy and St Aiden's CE Academy. More information about the Trust can be found here.
New Mill Infant School is a two form entry school with 176 places for pupils aged 4 to 7.
New Mill Junior School is a two form entry school with 240 places for pupils aged 7 to 11.
Our schools pride themselves on being thoroughly inclusive schools, where every child is valued and children’s well-being is at the heart of everything. The staff, governors, parents and carers are all dedicated to working together to enable the pupils to become confident, happy and independent learners and to making the schools a positive, creative and supportive community. The two schools work closely together to ensure that children transition smoothly from one to the other for the next stage of their educational journey.
