The local area
With evidence of prehistoric human settlement in the local area, the Celtic Brigantes tribe called this part of Yorkshire their home until the Roman occupation in the first century AD. Known as the ‘Merrie City’ in the Middle Ages, the Battle of Wakefield was fought during the War of the Roses and the city was a Royalist stronghold in the English Civil War. With good supplies of fish thanks to the River Calder, Wakefield prospered from its corn, coal mining and textiles in the 18th century and became a wealthy market town thanks to the Industrial Revolution.
The modern city has seen plenty of regeneration, including the Trinity Walk shopping centre, and has all the amenities you need. It also has a great location within Yorkshire around ten miles south of Leeds, with trains from Wakefield Westgate station taking around 15 minutes, and five minutes more from Wakefield Kirkgate. The M1 motorway passes just to the west of Wakefield, while Leeds Bradford Airport is around 20 miles away when it’s time to go on holiday. Local towns such as Dewsbury, Pontefract, Huddersfield and Halifax are all fairly easy to drive to.
There are some excellent schools in the area for families with children to take their pick from, with primary options including Jerry Clay Academy, Lawefield Primary and St Austin’s Catholic Primary. Some of the most highly rated choices at secondary level include Wakefield City Academy, Outwood Grange Academy and Kettlethorpe High School, which specialises in maths and computing. Wakefield College provides further and higher education in the city, while Leeds’ selection of universities is also just a short train journey away.
