Crofton Junior School is a semi-rural school, situated approximately 3 miles from Wakefield City centre. It is one of four schools in this large village. We are a two form entry school and there are currently 239 pupils on roll, of which a large proportion travel from outside the catchment.


Ofsted rated the school as "Good" following inspection in January 2018. Please follow the link below to read the full report.

Year 3 Eden Camp Visit

Our Year 4 pupils had a fabulous time at Eden Camp learning about the events of WW II and what life was like during that period in our history.

Basketball Tournament Success!

Congratulations to our basketball team who were victorious at the local schools' tournament. Everyone involved played with great skill and sportsmanship! We now look forward to the all Wakefield schools' tournament.

Children In Need Generosity

Thank you very much for supporting our Children In Need spotty non-uniform day and cake sale. School raised an amazing £391.64 for what is a very worthwhile cause.
