About Highgate Primary Academy

About Us

Highgate Primary Academy is an innovative and aspirational primary set in the heart of the Dearne Valley community in Barnsley. We have 340 children on roll ranging from three to eleven years. Goldthorpe is a close community that has benefited from regeneration programmes and investment, and as an academy we have worked tirelessly with families and partners to create a high-achieving school where ‘Excellence and Enjoyment for all’ underpins everything we do.

We are a community-focussed academy that provides our pupils with the best possible start in life, and helps them acquire the skills, knowledge and ambition to be effective members of a changing society. To do this we work hard to develop not just their academic ability, but the skills and outlook required to be successful life-long learners.

Our academy is bursting with potential, and we always look for talented individuals to join us on our journey to becoming outstanding!
