Why Barnsley needs a new school

Due to the increased population in Barnsley, particularly in young people of school age, there is a shortage of secondary school places which will last for the foreseeable future. The latest school capacity data was published in March 2020 and this shows clearly the lack of places and the need for a new secondary school in the Barnsley area. Our aim is to offer young people the provision of a first class, exciting alternative option for their education.

Barnsley urgently needs and deserves a new, high-achieving and aspirational secondary school to serve its children and communities.

Trinity MAT is proud to have transformed the life chances of thousands of pupils across its six existing academies, and we are equipped and eager to do the same for those in Barnsley.
