Hi, I am moving to the Wakefield area soon (close to the hospital). Please can someone advice me on the state schools I should opt for (both primary and secondary). It has to be good/outstanding as well as the behaviour of pupils matters the most. Please help me as I am loosing sleep over it!!! confused

I was wondering if you had any luck with this?

petamac, which area are you looking at?

Dane Royd in Hall Green is brilliant and I hear good things about West Bretton too. The children from Kettlethorpe High School seem pretty good too.

Have just spotted this! We're just over the border in Kirklees but I have worked in Wakefield. Ossett school has a really good reputation in Wakefield, but is obviously a way from town centre and hugely oversubscribed. Thomas a Becket is the Catholic school which again has a good reputation. I think that Outwood Grange will be your closest secondary - to be honest I haven't heard such great things especially since it became part of a massive academy trust but have no personal experience. Feel free to message me if you have any local questions!
