BOARDING SCHOOL

Ackworth has always been a mixed boarding school and currently about one third of the Senior School boards. There are separate boarding houses for boys and girls, each with comprehensive care and support appropriate to the age of the pupils. Boarding helps students to focus on study, giving students access to the School’s excellent library late into the evening and throughout the weekend.

Ackworth has developed a flexible approach to boarding: some students only go home for the three main holidays, others go home most weekends. Some board for the whole of their time at Ackworth, others board for perhaps one or two years.
