Schools in Wakefield

Wakefield, a local government district in West Yorkshire, boasts a rich history as a center for wool and cattle trading since the 19th century. Built around the River Calder, the town has been inhabited since pre-Roman times and features a notable Cathedral, historic buildings, and several museums. Notably, Wakefield has a past as a coal mining hub, with coal mines still present during the Industrial Revolution, and the National Coal Mining Museum is today a testament to that time. Beyond coal, Wakefield has developed a diverse economy, with textiles, manufacturing, food processing, and engineering sectors playing key roles. The city's cultural assets include the Hepworth Wakefield, a gallery highlighting the work of Barbara Hepworth, and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, promoting modern and contemporary sculpture.
