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.

Students go behind the scenes at Countdown

Students go behind the scenes at Countdown


As part of their studies Year 12 Creative Media students at St Ambrose Barlow Sixth Form College attended the filming of the hit Channel 4 production Countdown at Media City UK in Salford.

The students went behind the scenes at the filming of the semi-finals, where they had the chance to see what goes on during the making of the show. The experience gave them an inside view on the many elements of TV production including camera operation, lights, and scene selection. Staff at Media City took time to talk to the students about life in the media industry and the visit provided a valuable insight that could lead to a career in TV in the future.
