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 236 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 6 Residential 2022

Following concerns over the current risk of foreign travel, we asked parents which their preferred option would be, either continue with plans to take the children to France or organise for them to go to Robinwood.

Of the 54 parents who indicated that their child would be attending the residential visit, 26 chose France and 28 Robinwood.

As a result, we have booked for the children to go to the Robinwood Centre in Wrexham for a 2-night outdoor activities residential on Wednesday 18th May 2022. Details of the visit are available on individual ParentPay accounts.
