At Barkway school, we have high expectations for all our pupils and we aim to create a stimulating and vibrant learning environment, where all pupils achieve well and make good progress, academically, socially, morally, in the creative and performing arts and in sporting activities too. We have small classes and staff who know the children really well and best ways to help them learn and be happy.

Barkway Pre-school - In September we were pleased to welcome the village pre-school who are now based within Barkway First School

Barkway Pre-school is a voluntary managed setting run by a committee of parents. We offer high quality care and education for children aged 2-4 years. We offer a safe and stimulating environment in a classroom setting within Barkway First School. We have our own enclosed outside play area offering free flow from classroom to garden play.
