The Crossley Heath School is an outstanding mixed selective grammar school with academy status. The school is steeped in well over 400 years of tradition and has survived many different phases in its long history to become a central part of the community of Halifax.

Our students share our high aspirations for their futures and are challenged and supported by our dedicated teaching and support staff to achieve their ambitions.

We offer a strong family ethos and a secure environment in which our young people flourish and excel. Although we are a selective school for children at age 11, we draw our students from a wide range of backgrounds and geographical areas and we celebrate the diversity that this brings to us.

We are delighted to have been rated by The Sunday Times Parent Power list within the top 150 state schools in the country and the third best in the north of England! This is even better than our rating in 2017, when we were ranked fifth in the north. It’s well deserved recognition of the hard work and dedication of all our teaching and support staff and, of course, our fantastic students. Well done to everyone!
