A sense of community is at the heart of Hebden Royd, both within our school itself, as friends and neighbours in our town, and as members of a global community. Our students learn so much through being involved with our community and how to make a positive difference.
We are directly linked to St James Church both by the obvious blue walk way and the governance of our school. As a church school we are to be found in church at least every half term with a celebratory service. We support the good work done in church and they regularly display our children’s work. The vicar, Reverend Peter Calvert is a regular visitor and leads the whole school assembly every week.
Across the road from our school is a care home, Mytholm Meadows, and we often visit them for different activities. We love the chance to spend time with older generations. We all learn so much from each other, and we have lots of fun together.
Hebden Royd pupils are such caring children, and always enthusiastic about raising money for good causes. We love the chance to hold a bake sale or get sponsored to do something fun.
Charity work gives us a great chance to learn about the world, both in our own community and across the globe. We’ve made a difference to the environment with charities like Greenpeace, and sponsor our friend Karan in Armenia through World Vision.
Our local community
Our school is in Hebden Bridge in Calderdale and we love the creative, caring community here! There’s so many ways we get involved, from creating an art trail at the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival to presenting our work at the Calderdale-wide wellbeing conference.
