Welcome to Ackworth School

May I extend a very warm welcome to the website for Ackworth School.

The information given on this site is a small snapshot into the life of a truly remarkable, happy and vibrant school.

So much takes place daily that it is almost impossible to get a true flavour of the character and infectious quality of the school.

Aims and Ethos

Ackworth School's purpose is to create a happy and secure environment in which all pupils realise and develop their own special abilities in constant awareness of the needs and claims of others.

Academic Life


Early Years

Our Nursery and Reception classes offer a carefully integrated programme where we follow the Early Years Foundation Principles which guide the work of our staff.


Junior School

Building upon the Early Years Foundation Stage, our children continue to enjoy a breadth of education that stretches beyond the full National Curriculum, expanding their ideas and enriching their experiences.


Senior School

Ackworth provides a broad academic curriculum allowing young people to gain solid foundations and to discover and develop their talents.


Sixth Form

The Sixth Form is a community in itself, but it is also part of the wider School community. Our Sixth Form students act as role models for our younger pupils allowing opportunities to play a significant part in their pastoral care.
