What the school says...
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
Please come and visit us. I look forward to welcoming you to Ackworth.
