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 235 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.

Champion Reading School

Due to the overwhelming success of Accelerated Reader, we have been recognised as a 'champion school' by Renaissance the company who run the programme. Champion schools are recognised for the frequency that their pupils access the programme and the success rate they have when quizzing. It is also an indicator of how school are promoting a love of reading.  

Year 6 France Residential

I would like to thank everyone involved in making our very first France residential a huge success! The children gained so much from being immersed in another culture and visiting such wonderful sites as Mont St Michel, Fougeres Castle and the Bayeux Tapestry. They also loved the opportunity to meet and communicate with French children and even try traditional French food.

Basketball Success

There was another fantastic sporting performance by our basketball teams at the local school's tournament. School claimed 1st and 2nd place playing with great skill and sportsmanship. We are now looking forward to the all Wakefield tournament.

Cross-country Success

We are celebrating another amazing performance by our cross-country team at the local school's tournament. All the children ran with great stamina and determination and as a result many claimed individual medals.

We look forward to the all Wakefield tournament coming soon.
