King James’s School is a successful and oversubscribed 11-16 comprehensive school (NOR 906), serving a suburban area and a scatter of villages to the east and south of Huddersfield. It is situated approximately 2 miles from the centre of Huddersfield in a semi-rural position overlooking the Farnley Valley.

Our origins go back to the thirteenth century and the school, which has occupied its present site since 1547, became an Academy in 2012.

King James’s is a truly comprehensive school. The annual intake of 180 students, for which we are regularly over-subscribed, has a very broad socio-economic and ethnic mix, closely resembling the wider British society. Our intake comes predominantly from the priority admission area of Lepton, Kirkheaton and Grange Moor, but we also take from outside the area, particularly from Dalton and Almondbury.
