“Ackworth - Hidden Gem”

"> This is an amazing school doing fantastic work in the local community and beyond. Our daughter has positively flourished in the school environment around staff who genuinely care. The head is a fantastic role model to his students, always looking for ways to improve the school experience for all. We have so much to be grateful for as Ackworth did not feature in our lives initially and came along by chance. Such a fabulous opportunity for any young person. If you care about your child then visit and see for yourself. Yorkshire's best kept secret!

Ackworth School Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
