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.

This afternoon my train passed by Poole in Devon. Ann and Barton Gates, our first scholars when the school opened in October 1779, travelled by horse drawn cart, but walked when required, all the way from Poole to Ackworth. Seven years later they saw their parents again.
