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.

Teaching & Learning

“The remarkable feature of the evidence is that the biggest effects on student learning occur when teachers become learners of their own teaching, and when students become their own teachers.”

John Hattie, 2009

Over the past 15 years St Ambrose Barlow has been on a journey towards adopting more innovative approaches. One of the main areas of work is Research and Development. A variety of work is undertaken whereby staff and pupils collaborate with internationally recognised academic institutes to carry out research projects. The aim is for high quality and worthwhile research to take place in the school environment which informs future educational reform and organisation.

Below are examples of some of the ground-breaking Teaching & Learning projects that have taken place over the past year.
