Old Scholar Information

Dear Old Scholars,

We would like to invite to you register on the new closed online alumni platform ‘Graduway’.

The School has invested in Graduway as it provides an effective and easy to use way of maintaining contact between Old Scholars and between the School and Old Scholars.

It is a very secure platform and not open to the public.

Many of the world’s leading independent schools and universities make use of ‘Graduway’ and it came highly recommended.

To register please go to www.ackworthschoolconnect.com

Dear Easter Gatherers,

We hope that you are counting down the sleeps until Easter at Ackworth begins – the snow has melted, the snowdrops are starting to appear and Spring is definitely on its way. What better way to celebrate the Easter holidays than with a fun-packed long weekend break for all the family? There is once again a full programme of events and activities taking place throughout the weekend and hopefully there is something for everyone! Sports Ladders will be coordinated for the more active Easter Gatherers, along with the usual Rounders, Cricket, Hockey, Badsworth, Walking, and there’s plenty to do if you’d prefer a more relaxing Easter – Board Games, Art, Laughter Yoga, Poetry, Music and much more. The Saturday Formal Dinner will be a special one this year, so there will be lots going on. We are also hoping to hold an auction to raise money for the school this year. Easter auctions have always been very entertaining and in the past have raised significant amounts of money for the school. The theme for this year’s auction is anything with an Ackworth School connection – memorabilia, books, pictures, anything you think may raise a bit of money at auction. We’ve had a couple of donations already but it would be fantastic to receive some more, so please let me know if you think you may have something suitable. Also this year, to culminate the School’s centenary commemorations of the First World War, there will be a Peace Party, recreating the Peace Party that was held at Easter Gathering in 1919 – I do hope you will come and join in the fun for some or all of the weekend.
