Weekend Programme

For Ackworth’s boarders and many day students, the week does not end on Friday. We offer a varied programme of outings and activities at the weekend.

Not only do our students visit theatres, professional sporting events and local amenities, we also have various expert instructors visiting our campus to run a diverse range of workshops, from kite making, street dance and African drumming, to specialised sports coaching and Raku pottery.

There is also a very strong tradition of participation in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
