Welcome to Nidderdale High School

Nidderdale High School and Community College is a thriving 11 - 16 Comprehensive School set in the glorious rural location of Nidderdale an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The school is very ambitious for all our students - your children.  We have a simple, but powerful school aim - "Achievement for All".

We set very high expectations for all our young people both academically; in terms of progress and in regard to their behaviour.  We aim for all our students to develop a desire to invest in their own learning and fully prepare to take on the challenges of a rapidly changing 21st Century global society.

Students in return can expect our commitment to the highest possible quality of teaching, care and support.

We encourage our students to enjoy themselves and make a positive contribution to the wider life of the school.  For a school of our size we have outstanding facilities.  The small class sizes ensure that each young person is known and treated as an individual.  The school really does have a pleasant and friendly atmosphere where staff, students and parents work as a team for the benefit of everyone.
