Welcome to Ackworth School on Thursday March 18th, 2010. Ackworth School was founded as a boarding school for Quaker boys and girls in 1779. Today it has 550 boys and girls of many different faiths aged 2-18. It has a truly international feel, as over 100 of the pupils are boarders coming from a dozen or so countries.
The Quaker ethos of looking for the good in people, encouraging the individual and making time each day for periods of quiet reflection still lies very much at the heart of the School. At the same time, Ackworth is academically very successful and has a multitude of extra-curricular activities.
