Welcome to Yewlands Academy

A warm welcome to Yewlands Academy, a member of the outstanding Wakefield City Academies Trust. I am proud and privileged to be Principal of this academy. We enjoy lovely grounds, a state-of-the-art building, highly qualified and committed teachers and enthusiastic students. Our high expectations for our students are matched by the support and resources necessary for them to achieve those aspirations. Parents are valued partners in our work and are welcome to visit school by appointment, usually available on the same day.


We are proud of our academic excellence as well as our achievements across a broad spectrum of activities - personal and social, sporting, artistic, musical and cultural.

Yewlands offers a first class service for its students. We recognise their different needs and work hard with them to develop talents and potential in a spirit of mutual respect. We value the unique contribution of each student to our learning community. Our expectation of every student is to be the best that they can be.

We enjoy the commitment and support of our parents and carers and thank them for ensuring their child is in school on time, in full school uniform and with good intentions every day.
