Ackworth has a widely accepted reputation for excellence in education. High standards are set academically, in sport, the arts and in the personal lives of every pupil and member of staff. It is a highly respected co-educational, day and boarding HMC School with a long and successful history dating back to 1779.
It is a Quaker School and as such the Quaker foundation provides a rich historical tradition and a modern educational philosophy. Quakers believe that there is something of God in everyone. They recognise no barriers of ethnicity, class or gender. Simplicity, trust, equality, peace and sustainability are at the heart of the Quaker way of life. These principles make possible an education based on mutual respect and trust, and a belief that every member of the community is important, a trait which is so often lacking in modern society.
