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.

Student Car Wash Raises Funds for Charity

Student Car Wash Raises Funds for Charity


Students at St Ambrose Barlow Sixth Form College swapped their books for buckets as they took part in a fundraising car wash.

Sixth form pupils gave up their time to get stuck in to washing staff cars to raise money for the St Joseph’s Penny appeal for the Caritas charity. Sponges and buckets were donated by staff to support their efforts and many signed up to have their cars cleaned. Over the course of the afternoon the students washed almost 30 cars and raised an impressive £130 for the charity.

The event was part of a programme of fundraising activities in support of the charity and sixth formers also held a cake sale to add to their efforts.

Mr Paize, Head of Sixth Form, said: “Our students had a lot of fun today taking part in the car wash. They all deserve huge credit for giving up their time and energy to get involved and support St Joseph’s Penny."
