Located in a beautiful rural setting in Yorkshire, we offer broad educational opportunities from nursery age to sixth form, for day pupils and boarders. We are an attractive school to international students where they can easily settle into life in the UK.

Central to the role is the ability to understand the needs of current and prospective parents, and to identify strategies and initiatives which enable Ackworth School to meet these needs in the short and long term. Success in CRM is essential.
