Accommodation at Ackworth School for boarders - Houldsworth House
In Houldsworth and its surrounding private grounds, we aim to create a 'home from home' environment for our boarders in which they can feel secure and be all that they can be academically, socially and emotionally.
Led by the elected student Head of Boarding, the girls play an active part in the running of the House. They plan the week's menus, choose soft furnishings and contribute their skills and ideas to the weekly programme of all age activities, outings and events, which complements the extensive extra-curricular programme throughout the school. Boarders are encouraged to invite their day girl friends for a meal or to stay overnight at weekends, just as they would at home.
