A new primary school facility at Luck Lane, Huddersfield was officially launched at a special opening ceremony on Tuesday 11 October at 1.15pm. The impressive new building is part of Royds Hall Community School in Huddersfield.
Kirklees Council paid for the £7.9million facility as part of its work to ensure there are enough high-quality school places in areas where they are needed most.
Royds Hall is now an all-through school for 4 to 16-year-olds. The school’s expansion means that there are now separate dedicated areas for primary and secondary school children.
The Primary aged children moved into their new building at the start of term. The children marked the facilities official opening by showing guests around.

Councillor Masood Ahmed, Cabinet Member for Community Cohesion and Schools, said:
“We were privileged to be given a tour of the new facility, which is light and bright and architecturally appealing.
“Staff are thrilled with their new school and they told me what this investment means for the local community.
“Most important of all, I spoke to children who have just started their education and I felt incredibly proud knowing we have provided them with a superb foundation for their learning, growth and development.
“At £7.9million the school is a huge investment for the council. It highlights our commitment to supporting children, young people and their families.”
