Relocating If ds doesn't get a bursary for secondary schools year 9. Please can anyone give advise on any schools within half an hour of Wakefield for a good academic sporty boy who has flexi boarded

Neither are boarding, but both QEGS and silcoates would suit your son. Silcoates is less academically selective than QEGS but it's top end always does well, one of my sone went there and his A level biology class results were 100% A/A*.
Ackworth always has some supporters, but as a Quaker school they don't play contact sports, specifically rugby so it would depend on what sports your son is into.
Always been underwhelmed with Hill House in Doncaster, kids seem pretty uncivilised.

QEGS and Silcoates don't offer boarding. Ackworth is sporty but doesn't offer rugby gor boys (hockey or football instead).

Worksop College or York schools are slightly further away but offer boarding options.

I totally disagree with the previous post, my experience of Hill House pupils and the school couldn't be more positive. (But totally irrelevant as it too does not offer boarding options).

Thank you for replying ds is more football than rugby so ackworth is a possible any other views on ackworth or other schools in West Yorkshire.

Bradford grammar, Leeds grammar or QEGS and Silcoates in Wakefield and the ones which spring to mind.
