Brighouse High School, Sixth Form College
Brighouse Grammar School Sixth Form Centre, Parsonage Lane. The building was initially for the Brighouse & District Girls' Secondary School, and was designed by Sutcliffe & Sutcliffe and work started in June 1909. It opened on 6 September 1910. The Brighouse & District Technical School was opened in the same building in September 1910, having been moved from the Mechanics' Institute. There were additional premises for engineering and other subjects.

Following the Education Act (1944), it became the Brighouse Girls' Grammar School. In 1984 there was a major upheaval of Calderdale schools, and the Girls' Grammar school merged with Brighouse High School. There was a transfer of pupils year by year and eventually the building became the High School Sixth Form College.
