School Description

Wakefield Independent School is a non-selective independent day school for pupils from the ages of two to 17 years. There are currently no pupils accessing 16 to 19 or two-yearold provision. There are two proprietors, also known as governors. The school was last inspected in April 2016. The school does not use or provide any alternative education for pupils. The school is situated on the Nostell Estate and is formed of three buildings. The Rectory Inspection report: Wakefield Independent School, 5–7 February 2019 Page 9 of 12 is home for Nursery pupils to Year 4, Wragby for Years 5 and 6 and the main building for Years 7 to 11. The buildings are of historic interest, with both the Rectory and Wragby buildings listed by English Heritage.

“A Wonderful Education”
"> My husband and I are very pleased with the education our children received at W.I.S. They are now young adults with excellent manners and have remained interested in the areas that the wonderful teachers introduced to them. From early on we saw a marked difference between our children and their friends, particularly their mature approach to thinking rather than simply waiting to be told.It really does deserve a visit as the atmosphere is very welcoming and the teachers exceptional.
