Barnby Road Academy caters for children aged between three and eleven years old. The school was opened January 1984 and was formed from the Barnby Road Junior School and the Barnby Road Infants School. We moved to our fantastic new site and new building, designed by teachers and children in October 2007. In September 2010 we became an academy school, responsible for our own resources, site and curriculum.
The school has grown since 1984 where there were 160 children. There are now approximately 525 children plus our 78 place nursery. We have 21 classrooms, a large Foundation unit, a hall, a substantial outside environment, wonderful foyers and workspaces. It's a circular building with a real heart.
The new wing is a Key stage Two wing built in September 2012 and opened in 2013. It was a result of an accommodation bid to the Academy Capital Fund in response to popular/oversubscribed schools requiring more space. It is agreed with the LA and Trustees that Barnby Road will have a First admission PAN of 75 pupils.
The new Des Whicher wing offers:
A performing arts studio
Junior toilet block
Special needs / Welfare room
Leadership office space
