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.

Hotel Underground Competition

Hotel Underground Competition


The Design, Engineer, Construct! competition, sponsored by Radisson Hotels and London Transport, required the pupils to design a building that would transform a disused, existing London Underground station into a top class hotel with a James Bond theme! They were given a model of the station and were asked to build above, below and through with just 8 weeks to turn the project around.

Brad Lees, Luke Chantler, Luke Steedman and Craig Vevers, were crowned Northern Winners for their innovative 00Heaven design and as such travelled to London to go head to head with the Southern winners, Heathcote School in Chingford, for the national title.

The pupils had to present their ideas to a panel of top industry professionals at a glitzy awards ceremony. They spent two days in London which included staying in a 4* Radisson Hotel, a tour of the London Transport Agency Building and the opportunity to listen to presentations from the Groups' design and engineering specialists.
