A GOOD School

Our primary school and preschool is a community in which we are all valued equally as individuals. We treat each other and everyone in our community with respect: valuing trust and honesty in all we do.

We strive constantly for our children to enjoy school and become life long learners. Our curriculum promotes active learning that engages all children, promotes a healthy lifestyle and encourages enterprise. As a school community we value commitment.

At Gisburn Road, located at the very heart of Barnoldswick, we prepare our children to have the confidence and skills to thrive.

In our last Ofsted inspection we were graded 'good'.
