We hope that all our pupils and their families have a safe and happy summer and are able to make the most of time together in July and August.
The summer holidays can, however, be a difficult time for some families and can also be a period during which the good weather, long days and free time can lead young people to take risks that they would not otherwise entertain at other times of the year.

Come and join us to celebrate the end of another successful school year. Fancy taking on the teachers? Or, just want to meet up with fellow parents, carers and pupils?
Dear Parent, Carer or Friend of St. Ambrose Barlow,
I am sure that, like our staff, you have been deeply affected by the terrible events in Manchester city centre. As a school community we are fortunate that although some pupils and staff were present at the concert, all are alive and well. Our staff have provided as much support as possible to young people who are upset by recent events and we will continue to do so over the coming days. On Tuesday we said prayers as a staff and in each form group in memory of those killed and injured and as a gesture of solidarity with all affected by the attack.
At St. Ambrose Barlow RC High School we intend to make some changes to our school day from 1st September, 2017. These changes have been discussed with the Governing Body and we are now putting them to a consultation with parents, carers, staff, pupils and other stakeholders.
We would like to thank all parents who supported the Curriculum Evening held on 2nd March 2017. Many parents have requested copies of the presentations/ Booklet used on the evening.
