Working for us

Ackworth School, a co-educational boarding and day school, was founded in 1779 by the Society of Friends (Quakers). It maintains its ethos and traditions and is still governed by the society although only a small minority of pupils and staff are from the Quaker tradition. The school is academically non-selective and provides an excellent range of facilities and extra-curricular opportunities. The school is a member of both HMC and SHMIS.

There are currently over 320 pupils in the senior school (aged 11-18) and 125 pupils in Coram House, the junior school (aged 3-11). Over 80 of the senior school are boarders. The school also has an international studies centre providing academic English language programmes. The school is set in beautiful grounds in the village of Ackworth. There are excellent transport links to nearby cities such as York, Leeds, Sheffield, Harrogate and Wakefield. The dales and the peak district are both just over one hour away.


Ackworth School is looking to appoint a new Head to lead the School community providing first class opportunities and a supportive environment for young people to acquire the skills and values they will need to make a positive contribution to the well-being of those around them.

The appropriate candidate will provide management and leadership across the whole school in line with our ethos and values.
