Founded in 1667 The Mirfield Free Grammar and Sixth Form has a long established tradition of success and promotes values such as respect, honesty, integrity, morality and courtesy. We are an Outstanding Academy, Technology College and National Support School. We were rated Outstanding by Ofsted in 2008 and again in May 2012. For more information and the full report, please click here. On 1st April 2011 it became an Outstanding Converter Academy. The MFG believes by becoming an Academy it has enabled its staff to serve the needs of their students increasingly effectively into the future.
We work hard to maintain a happy and well-run school, where students feel confident to thrive and develop. We strive to make our school a place of sound, stimulating and appropriate learning, where every student can achieve their true potential. We create a caring community where great emphasis is placed upon good relationships and partnerships to encourage respect, understanding and co-operation.
The Academy’s results are exemplary. In 2012, 95% of students have achieved 5 or more A*-C grades and 99% gained 5 or more A*-G grades, both of which show very good value-added achievement. 74% achieved 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Mathematics, again showing very good value-added achievement. Post-16 results were also very good. All our students proceeded to higher and further education courses of their choice.
As a National Leader of Education, The Mirfield Free Grammar becomes a National Support School. As an Outstanding Academy we believe we have a moral purpose to support other schools who are not yet rated as Good by Ofsted, because every student deserves a “Good” education.
