In Barnsley, we have 55 nursery units for children between three and four years of age, which are attached to primary schools.

Education for children between the ages of five and 11 is provided in 77 primary schools; 38 of these are academies.

For young people 11 - 18, education is provided by 9 advanced learning centres, four of which are academies.
