From 1891 to 1898, D. H. Lawrence attended the Beauvale Board School which, before the building of the new school, housed our classrooms for pupils aged 4 to 8. Born into a mining family in Eastwood on 11th September 1885, David Herbert Lawrence was a novelist, poet and playwright. The school he attended was renamed "Greasley Beauvale D. H. Lawrence Infant School" in his honour. He died on 2nd March 1930 in Vence, France, aged 44.
