Ackworth School

Ackworth has always been a co-educational, boarding and day school. For over 230 years, we have maintained a passion for teaching and learning. We are proud of our traditions and family values, but equally proud of our innovative approach to co-education.

Ackworth is a dynamic and forward-thinking school. We strive to develop resilient individuals who not only think creatively, but also act ethically and with responsibility. We encourage our students to express themselves with confidence, to embody the Quaker value of speaking respectfully to others, but also in a way that is true to themselves and their beliefs.

Located in a beautiful rural setting in Yorkshire, we offer broad educational opportunities from nursery age to sixth form, for day pupils and boarders.

Some of these opportunities are:
· proven academic performance
· a safe and supportive atmosphere
· the strength of quiet reflection
· excellent sport, music, drama, visual arts and recreational facilities

The School embraces the Quaker ethos of looking for the good in people, encouraging the individual and providing a friendly, supportive environment. First class teaching, a broad curriculum and superb facilities provide the foundations for a stimulating learning environment.
