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.

Our Achievements

We are about much more than exam results. We know that our pupils will be judged on many things as they go through life so we celebrate all of the achievements of our young people. There are many reasons why we are an outstanding school and the results achieved by pupils in Key Stages 4 and 5 are just one example of our success. Our students are all-rounders experiencing success in performance, sports, outdoor learning, enterprise, community service and much more.
