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.
