Head teacher Brendan Heneghan said it was a highlight in the school calendar to which parents attended.

“All the lads’ in school achieved awards celebrating their achievements,” he said.

“It’s a big day for our boys who all come from maintstream schools where they have been told they are failures.

“So, to come into an environment where they succeed is a big thing for them.”

Prizes were presented by Anne Scarborough, who is head of support services at Calderdale Council.

Members of Brighouse Rotary Club also attended.
