Welcome to
Barrow Hill Academy

Welcome to the home of Barrow Hill Primary Academy online. We are a small school located in the village of Barrow Hill, near Chesterfield in Derbyshire. We currently have around 80 children on roll from nursery up to year 6. 

At Barrow Hill Primary Academy, our vision is to create a safe, nurturing, learning environments where children, staff and the community are proud of their achievements.

We are:

  • Respectful

  • Approachable

  • Honest

  • Committed

We will achieve this by creating a culture of learning and discovery that is stimulating and enjoyable for both children and staff. We #dreambig and make learning fun. Our aim is to inspire children to be ambitious, resilient, life-long learners and responsible citizens.

Our school ethos is centred around giving our children real-life, purposeful learning opportunities to inspire them to 'dream big' in their own lives. We are a growing and improving school and we pride ourselves that we know each and every child inside out. We do our best to help each child find their strengths and talents so that they will flourish and be challenged.

We work closely with our families to ensure that all children achieve their potential across our community, having relentlessly high expectations for ourselves and others. 

As a school we are passionate about working as part of a collaborative learning commmunity. We work closely with the other trust schools as well as the Staveley cluster group to share excellent practice to improve outcomes for every child. We are also part of the Synergy Teaching School Alliance (TSA) and have links with around 35 other schools in Derbyshire. 

I hope that our website will inspire new parents to visit Barrow Hill Primary Academy. I am always delighted to meet visitors to the school and I'm always happy to show off the work we do here. 

Kind Regards, 

Mr Ben Wray (Acting Headteacher)
