School Values

Gawber is proud to be an Outstanding school, located in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

The school was built in 1974 although there has been a village school at Gawber since 1856.

We are in a semi-rural setting with lovely views of countryside and farmland.

The school is on a single level site which makes access to all areas very easy.

There are seven class bases and a small classroom used for group teaching.

An extension was opened in 2005 and this houses a purpose built Foundation Stage classroom, Year One classroom a computer suite and the staffroom.
