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.

Durham trip.

We went to Durham on Saturday 10th March. After a lengthy 2 hour drive we finally arrived and walked up to the cathedral and castle… in the rain…ewww!

We looked in the cathedral. We looked at the beautiful carvings into the stone pillars and the new parts of the cathedral with new tapestries filled with bright colours. After this, a coffee/subway stop was much needed/ Yay! At 2pm we had a guided tour of the castle and also found out it was one of 16 colleges at Durham University...
