Welcome to our school

We hope that the information we have provided on our website will tell you all you need to know but if you cannot find what you are looking for please contact us directly.

September opening information


Children in Chimps, Pandas and Zebras are eligible for free school meals, which will be supplied by school and will be 'packed lunches, warm and cold'. For children in the juniors who are not wanting school lunch, again a packed one, they will need to bring a lunch from home. All lunches must be in a plastic lunchbox that can easily be wiped down. Please do not pack lunches in a fabric or plastic bag. All children need to bring a named water bottle from home.

On PE days the children will need to come to school in their PE kits, which will need adjusting in line with the weather.



If your child turns 3 before the end of December 2020 and you are looking for a place in our teacher led nursery class please download the application form below and email it to or print it out and post it to school. During this time of lockdown this is the safest way to make your application but if you have problems please ring the school office on 880810.

We are able to offer flexible 15 hour or 30 hour places with the option to pay for extra sessions, breakfast club or after school club. Further details are on our website.

After we receive your application we will confirm the offer of a place and then contact you with further details about starting nursery once we know more about when we are reopening.

Great Harwood Primary School is a friendly, caring and welcoming community school in the heart of Great Harwood, Lancashire. We take children from the age of 3 (or 2 in certain circumstances) in our nursery class, up to the age of 11 in year 6.  Our extended provision includes a breakfast club and an after school club.

Our school is housed in three traditional stone buildings, first opened in 1909. Whilst the exterior maintains its traditional appearance, the inside has undergone extensive remodelling in recent years to provide a bright, spacious environment in which our children can learn.
