Southdale Church of England

Junior School




We are a 7-11, Church of England school, in the heart of Ossett, in Wakefield, Yorkshire.  We cater for 330 pupils, supported by a combined staff of over 50 adults.  Together this team forms the Southdale Community, often referred to; as the Southdale Family.  We are a community that values each individual and provides first class educational and personal development for everyone who enters our school, as a student or staff member.


Our curriculum centres on preparing our students for their continued journey onto GCSEs, A-Levels and beyond.  All of our pupils take part in English (Literacy) and Mathematics (Numeracy) lessons each day, and engage in Religious Education, Humanities, Art & Design, French, Computing, Personal and Social Education and Music lessons on a weekly basis.  Our Physical Education is also very important to us and a focus for yet further development and enhancement over the coming years.


Southdale prides itself on providing our students with a variety of challenging opportunities to support their learning and all round development. 


I hope that this short welcome and the web site as a whole give you a good introduction to our school, but do feel free to contact us with any queries you may have or to arrange a visit, if you are considering Southdale as your child’s future school.
