Senior School

First-class teaching is at the heart of any good school and Ackworth benefits greatly from the quality and experience of its teaching staff.

The aim is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum based on the National Curriculum but to take advantage of the flexibility we enjoy as an independent school.

Ackworth's highly successful academic record speaks for itself, but perhaps doesn't highlight the successes achieved by some pupils of relatively modest academic potential. This is a tribute to the teaching staff. It also reflects the fact that Ackworth is extremely well resourced. It has spacious, well-equipped Science laboratories, outstanding Art, Music and Drama facilities and a first-class Library. The Sports facilities are excellent and specialist ICT and Design and Technology facilities are well established.
