Principal's Message

We work hard to maintain a happy and well-run Academy, where students feel confident to thrive and develop. We strive to make our Academy a place of sound, stimulating and appropriate learning, where every student can achieve his/her potential. We create a caring community where great emphasis is placed upon good relationships and partnerships to encourage respect, understanding, co-operation and collaboration. The MFG has outstanding teaching; all students, irrespective of ability, are driven  to be the ‘best they can be’ and as Ofsted confirmed: “Almost all students make outstanding progress overall from their starting points .”

Our vision is “Everyone Exceptional Every day” and this together with our mission statement ‘To enable our students and staff to achieve their best’ drives our ethos.

Our values are:

  • Respect: recognise, understand and celebrate differences;
  • Integrity: truth and honesty in all we do in and out of the academy;
  • Team Work: work together effectively and efficiently;
  • Aspiration: be the best you can be.

Our staff lead by example and work hard to ensure that our young people feel happy, valued and secure, but equally they endeavour to enthuse them with a sense of aspiration, optimism and ambition. Work ethic is important and so is attitude. We encourage a ‘can do’ attitude in relation to both work and play, and our expectations are extremely high.

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, and National Support School. We were rated Outstanding by Ofsted in 2008 and again in May 2012, this does not happen by chance. We strive for excellence in everything we do. The MFG is a vibrant learning environment; everything we do, every decision we make is focused on the students and how we can inspire them to achieve the very best for themselves academically and personally.
