About Joseph Locke Primary School


We would like to offer you a warm welcome to our brand new website and hope that it gives you lots of information about our fantastic school here in Barnsley town centre

Our school celebrated its tenth birthday earlier this year and is a modern, up–to date school set in extensive grounds. It was named after an eminent Victorian engineer who was educated locally and we believe that our pupils can be inspired by the success he achieved through hard work and determination.

We are very proud of the diverse and caring nature of our school and we know it offers pupils the opportunity to achieve in a special environment. We offer a broad and exciting curriculum which allows children to foster a passion for learning and enquiry. Every child matters at Joseph Locke and we work hard to ensure that everyone feels themselves to be a vital wheel in the cog!

Our motto is, ‘Together we will achieve’ and we value the relationships we have with parents, local schools and others in the local community. The link between school and home is a vital one and we value parents’ help and support in everything we do.

If you would like to come and visit us please do- We’re sure you will be impressed! In the meantime, please use our website to discover more about us.
