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.

First Graduates Celebrate Success

01.09.15

The first ever cohort of learners at St Ambrose Barlow RC Sixth Form College celebrated the successful completion of their two-year course at a special graduation presentation.
The students, who were part of the very first intake at the Sixth Form, returned for a presentation of certificates and awards. Current students joined with staff to congratulate them on their success and to hear more from those who have been there about the opportunities their course can offer them.

The group achieved a 100% pass rate and all students have moved on successfully to University or employment. 60% of students are beginning life at University in a range of fields including Paramedic Science, Sport Rehabilitation, Games Development and Hospitality Management.

Headteacher Ben Davis said: “This is a very proud moment for these students, their families and teachers. It is a major milestone for the school to see our first 6th form cohort complete their courses and achieve to such a high level. These students leave with our very best wishes for an exciting and fulfilling future. Their chosen courses post-sixth form demonstrate the broad and challenging education we offer at St. Ambrose Barlow 6th Form and the way we produce students who are well-qualified to succeed and to make a contribution to their local community. This is a very exciting for our 6th form as it grows to offer more courses with links to the creative industries.”

Head of 6th Form Peter Paize added: "We are very proud of our first group of students, not only of their outstanding academic achievements but their amazing contribution to our community. By having them share their experiences with our current students, they have been able to show them how to reach their potential and progress into top Universities or employment.”
