Outwood Primary Academy Littleworth Grange is a large and popular school for children aged 3-11, located in an attractive new building which was designed to provide outstanding opportunities for teaching and learning. Our school is an important part of the community of Lundwood, near Barnsley, and prides itself on its strong ethos of caring and nurturing, promoting positive behaviour by respecting and encouraging a high level of pupil participation in all aspects of school life. The school holds a number of awards including the Activemark and the Healthy Schools Silver Award.
The school provides extended services such as study support, family learning courses and community access to their facilities. We have an Early Years Unit (including a 78-place nursery), ensuring that children receive an inclusive, personalised education right from the start. Children join FS2 (reception) in September, so classes are sometimes mixed age but we aim to keep single-age, mixed ability classes wherever possible. At present there are 404 pupils on roll, with a further 33 children in nursery making a total of 437.
