Executive Headteacher Introduction

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, I hope you find it informative and that it gives you a flavour of what it is like to attend our very unique school. Everyone connected to Kirkburton Middle School (KMS) is very proud of our school.

The three years between the ages of ten and thirteen are characterised by rapid physical, social and emotional change and are of great significance in the academic and social development of young people. KMS provides a welcoming and secure environment in which pupils enter as young children and leave as confident young adults, each developing at the rate that is right for them.  We specialise in supporting, nurturing and guiding young children through this time in their lives – emotionally, socially and academically – in order that they are able to achieve well and feel safe. We believe strongly in the importance of the principles of inclusion, the development of the whole child and meeting the needs of the individual. To this end we provide a broad and balanced curriculum, together with an extensive range of enrichment and extra-curricular activities.
