“It is through this that self-esteem, resilience and confidence are built.

“We nurture happy, inquisitive children who want to care about the environment and find out about the world around them.

“We don’t believe that one size fits all when it comes to an education at Ackworth. We will help your child progress at the pace most appropriate to their aptitudes, interest and abilities, steering them to the start of a bright and fulfilling future.

“Pupils leave their education well-rounded and equipped to lead a full and responsible life in the adult world, having been given the widest range of possible opportunities to grow as a person at Ackworth School. For many, this starts at nursery and they stay with us until the end of their sixth form education.’’
