Academic Life

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

Our aim is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum based on the National Curriculum but taking advantage of the flexibility we enjoy as an independent school. We encourage students to make curriculum choices which suit them best and much advice and guidance is on offer to help them to do this.

Tonight at 11:00 pm, the U.K. will leave the European Union. While there are strong opinions and emotions on both sides of this – at times – bitter divide, we find a deeper meaning and sense of shared humanity in a joint statement from the Britain and Ireland Quaker Yearly Meetings. These words were shared at today’s Morning Meeting by Daniel Marks, Director of Music at Ackworth School.

“Regardless of the changing political situation, the ties that bind us at the deepest level – those of love and human connection – remain as they ever did. All boundaries and divisions are human constructs.

“We recognise that Brexit is not an endpoint, but a step in the continuing relationship between our respective countries. We know that there will be a wide range of emotions felt in our Quaker and wider communities about our arrival at this point, and we ask Quakers to be truthful but tender with those around us. We all have to continue to live together, and we should act in ways that encourage this.

“Signed, In Loving Friendship,
Clerks to the Britain and Ireland Yearly Meeting"
