Reach Academy


Reach Academy, and its predecessor school, Westfields, is a well-established school for children in Key Stage 3 (ages 11 to 14) with Social, Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs.  Some have been permanently excluded from Kirklees secondary schools.  A high proportion of children make a successful return to their local or another mainstream school following their time at Reach Academy, while some progress to special school provision in order that their long term needs can be met.

Our School

We have developed a high-quality provision where young people can learn through supportive interaction, underpinned by personalised interventions, and experience success in their learning.  We are proud of the stimulating and safe environment we have created for young people where the emphasis is placed upon growing, learning and fulfilling the potential of every child.  We are committed to improving the life chances of pupils by removing barriers to engagement and achievement.  Our aim is to create a secure and inspiring environment where every child is empowered to take ownership of their lives, their learning and their decisions.


In January 2018, we received the Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM), Flagship status.

In July 2018, we received the 360 Safe Online Safety Award.
