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 237 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 School Reading Award

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.  

Young Voices Success

Our choir enjoyed a fabulous time once again at the Young Voices event in Sheffield. All their hard work definitely paid off as they performed each song wonderfully well. Everyone commented what a credit they were to school throughout the day!

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.
