About Ackworth School
The school is non-selective and has a proud academic record. This summer the school’s A’level results were 55% A*- B, and over 30% of grades were A*/A. The school has two pupils heading to Cambridge this academic year and other top Russell Group Universities such as: Manchester, LSE, Leeds, York and Edinburgh
The school is also very keen to focus on the co-curricular activities in the school - the recent establishing of a football academy that is run by the current manager of Halifax Town, former premiership footballer, Jamie Fullarton. The links to local professional football clubs are numerous - Leeds, Barnsley, Doncaster and more recently the Manchester and Liverpool clubs.
Ackworth are currently national UK squash champions and the British ‘centre for squash’ is at Pontefract, the neighbouring town, 10 minutes away.
The school are now also proud to be recognised as a ‘Steinway School for music’. We are proud to boast fantastic instruments, excellent teaching and have the ability to promote top musicians through concerts, locally, nationally and globally.
Boarding is busy and happy - there is an excellent pastoral team, with welcoming Houseparents and the facilities are good. The food is also impressive and we have a leaflet to show you! Weekend activities can involve shuttle buses to Leeds, watersports, visit to National trust venues and other areas of cultural and historical significance, Horse-riding and much, much more! It is a busy place but there will always be time for self-reflection and re-charging of batteries.
Ackworth is a special place with a wonderful community. The local villagers take a keen interest in the school and with the acres of freedom, rolling green fields, it is a great place for a pupil to grow and fulfil their potential.
