As Headteacher of The Barlow R.C. High School, I would like to extend to you a very warm welcome to our community.
The Barlow is a school which embraces Christian values, fosters academic excellence, insists upon high standards and ensures the highest quality of teaching and learning. We have an experienced, highly skilled, and committed teaching staff, who set consistently high expectations and provide a superb learning environment for all our pupils, regardless of their academic ability. We pride ourselves in our relentless drive to ensure that all pupils flourish in our care, and grow into well-rounded, respectful, confident, successful young people. This achievement is built on the close partnership we form with parents and carers to ensure the best possible education for each and every one of our pupils.
The Barlow Open Evening will give you a flavour of the range of opportunities we offer and will highlight what makes The Barlow such a successful and special place to learn. However, we invite you to visit us to see for yourself our vibrant, happy, and purposeful environment in action. We look forward to meeting you.
