The Pochin School is a co-educational school for children aged four to eleven years in the village of Barkby. We also have a term-time pre-school based in the Village Hall for three and four year old children.
Many of the children come from outside the catchment area from the surrounding villages and Hamilton. In total we have approximately 160 children.
The main building was built in 1869 and enlarged in 1894. It is a Grade 2 listed building that has been modernised recently to make it suitable for the 21st Century whilst maintaining its character.
The school has five classes. Outside, we have two playgrounds, one for the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children and one for the Key Stage 2 children. The Cricket Pitch is used as a sports field and we use the Village Hall for dinners, assemblies and PE.
