Happy Children Make Progress...

Southdale is a dynamic, vibrant, church junior school situated in the heart of Ossett, West Yorkshire. The two form entry school is full of character, love and life and provides an extremely high standard of education as well a wealth of wonderful experiences for children between the ages of seven to eleven. Southdale’s ethos is built on a bedrock of strong, Christian values.

It is a school full of warmth, energy and enthusiasm where children feel nurtured, happy and valued. This exciting yet calm, purposeful atmosphere is palpable the moment you step into the environment. We pride ourselves in having a totally committed staff team who are relentless in their drive to offer a curriculum which is broad, challenging, creative and inspiring. Expectation is very high and all children are motivated to ‘be the best that they can be’.

The whole Southdale family subscribes to the notion that it is ‘cool to work hard… do well… be positive and enthusiastic’.

Elodia Krische Eccles
Headteacher

The school environment promotes excellence and outstanding experiences. From specialist cooking and horticultural practices, exceptional creative and imaginative displays, including ceramic design of the highest quality, geographical and historical enquiries and links with the local environment and beyond, and relationships and expectations that exude ambition and aspiration, Southdale oozes `pure delight.` Learning is exciting, stimulating and relevant.
Pupils are subsequently absorbed, immersed and enthralled at all times. No mountain is too high to climb, no challenge too great and no reward undeserved. All adults, including learning support and administration personnel, make a strong contribution to this overall ethos and ambience.
