Wakefield College has recently undergone a modernisation programme and, like many colleges in the area, it offers a good range of vocational and higher education courses. For those wanting to study to degree level, there are plenty of established universities within travelling distance which offer graduate courses.


Sport & Leisure

Wakefield has a proud rugby league tradition with local teams from the region attracting large crowds. For cricket fans, Headingley International cricket ground is not far away and if you’re more of a player than a spectator, there’s plenty of golf courses, Stanley Golf Club is just half a mile away. Pontefract Racecourse is only a short ride down the M62 and closer to home other attractions include: Pugneys Country Park, where sailing, surfing and canoeing is available; Xscape, the North’s largest indoor, real snow ski-slope where you can also enjoy bowling, a multi-screen cinema and a huge choice of bars and restaurants.
Right on your doorstep there are playing fields for the kids and several miles of canal tow paths, ideal for cycling, running or simply strolling along with the dog. So whether you’re a serious fitness fan, or you prefer a more leisurely approach to life, you can do it amid the beautiful countryside surrounding St Swithins.

Local Community

St Swithins enjoys the proximity of a cosmopolitan city and all that it offers, whilst having the benefit of a quiet suburban location. On the edge of beautiful countryside and close to an historic waterway which is still home to many house boats moored at Stanley Marina.

Getting About

A ‘local village’ ambience, yet with surprisingly swift access to transport links, with major motorways, including the M1, M62 and A1, all close by and Leeds, only 10 minutes away. For those who need to commute further afield, Wakefield has two train stations, both offering direct routes to Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester and London, arriving in the City in less than two hours. There are regular, efficient local services that make it really easy to get around the area.

St Swithins is now all sold.
