Welcome to the home of Poolsbrook Primary Academy online.
We are a small village school situated at the edge of the beautiful surroundings of Poolsbrook Country Park. The view from the front of the school is magnificent and it this link to the outdoors that makes Poolsbrook such an amazing school to be part of.
We are very proud of our school and our location and this can be seen on our Poolsbrook Primary Academy logo, which reflects the the village's mining past ( the wheel and the lamp) and the country park ( the trees and the wildlife) . The band across the middle also links to the George Barrow Family Coat of Arms, who through marriage to Elizabeth Mather Lowe, became the proprietor of the Staveley Forge and Iron Works which built many of the houses in Poolsbrook village for the miners and their families.
The original 'mining houses' may be gone but the school continues to recognise this heritage as school 'houses' are named after prominent mines in the local area Markham, Bolsover, Arkwright and Ireland.
