Edward Sheerien School was a comprehensive school in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England serving 11 to 16 year olds on the site of the former St Helens Comprehensive school. The school accommodated approximately 800 pupils. It was also the site where a large portion of the motion picture Kes was filmed.

As of September 2009, the school was merged with Royston High School and became known as Carlton Community College and moved to new premises in 2011.

The original Edward Sheerien School was in Newstead Road Athersley North and was amalgamated with St. Helens on Carlton Road in 1992. The site of the school was demolished in early 2011.
