Welcome to Sharrow School

Welcome to Sharrow School’s website.  We hope you find the website helpful and informative. We also hope that if you are visiting the site for the first time that it gives you a feel for the school that we are very proud of.  If you have any questions which are not covered, please ask at the school office or give us a ring. We are always happy to answer queries and questions. Just give the office team a call on 0114 255 1704.

Sharrow School is a very inclusive school – welcoming children and families from a wide range of backgrounds. We currently have 40 different languages spoken by children, families and staff in school. Celebrating difference and learning to live together is a very important part of our ethos.

We are a 2-form entry primary school, with 60 children per year group from Reception to Year 6. We are usually very over-subscribed but we do sometimes have spaces if children move out of Sheffield. If you are interested in applying for a place for your child at Sharrow School, please visit our admissions page.


We have an excellent nursery provision at Sharrow which children usually join the term after they turn 3 years old.

We offer part-time and full-time places. The majority of parents use their 15 hours of funded childcare for morning provision (8.45am to 11.45am each day) or afternoon provision (12.15pm to 3.15pm to each day). However, we do also have some children who are entitled to the extended 30 hours of free childcare and stay with us for the whole day. We also offer bespoke attendance patterns for families that need specific days and offer top-up hours and wrap around care @ £5.50 per hour.

Children’s Centre

We are also fortunate at Sharrow to have a specialist Children’s Centre where we accept babies from 3 months old until they are ready to move to the Sharrow Nursery. Whilst some families are entitled to 15 hours of free provision, the majority of parents pay £5.50 per hour for the sessions that they need.

Wrap-Around Care

We are open every day from 8am to 5pm, except for 2 weeks at Christmas. We offer holiday childcare as well as a variety of after school clubs. Please contact the school office for more information.

Magic Breakfast

Sharrow School is proud to be in partnership with Magic Breakfast, providing free healthy breakfast bagels to all of our pupils so that they are settled and ready to learn.
