Sports at Ackworth

Ackworth prides itself on the wide range of sports accessible to the students in both Junior and Senior School. Sports and physical and mental well-being are very important to today’s students providing them with a positive foundation for their academic work. Sport can expose a student to self-discipline, practice and preparation, teamwork, goal setting, success and failure, and resilience.

Ackworth is a UK boarding school with a proud reputation of sporting success, this is showcased in our academies. The sports academies offer the chance for talented students to train under world class coaches in tailor made programmes. Those in the academies often go on to compete at county and even international level.
