Thank you for visiting our school website.

The children, staff, governors and myself are all very proud of our school and we strive to ensure that Greengate is a happy, caring environment where everyone works hard and achieves to their best potential. Our aim is to give children the skills to become life long learners so that they can become the good citizens of the future. Here at Greengate we believe in offering children opportunities to develop individual skills and so we offer a creative curriculum and plenty of opportunities for children to develop their skills both during school and after school. From the moment your child enters the school they will become part of the school community.

At Greengate we are in a strong position to succeed in all aspects of education. We are a well resourced school; we have excellent premises and small class sizes.The school has an open door policy so that you can come and discuss anything you need to. The whole team is very dedicated and by working with you, the parent, we can build a team that will help your child.We are all extremely proud of our achievements no matter how big or small. We understand that if you are deciding on the next four years of your child’s education then you are making a very big decision. Therefore, please visit us and see what we do.

Year six start the term with a local history study and trip!

Year six children started their Autumn locality study with a walk through the Barrow Town Trail, and a visit to the Dock Museum. Children learned about their Victorian heritage and how the town developed through the ages. Of course, there was time for a bit of fun playing at the Dock Museum park! The trip will be followed up in a few weeks with a visit and study of the Ambleside locality, and a workshop from the Barrow Archives office telling the story of Alfred Wainwright.
