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.

Work For Us



We are seeking to appoint, as soon as possible, to our fantastic school, a committed and enthusiastic Teaching Assistant to join our Special Needs Team. You will undertake a teaching support role within the school and will be working with one or more pupils who have a statement of SEN or additional learning needs. The timetable will involve support within a range of curriculum areas and include time spent within our Pupil Support Centre.

We do things differently. If you want to join a fantastic Catholic school with a new Sixth Form and a very exciting future; if you want to work in a vibrant and creative school with unparalleled links with business and industry; if you believe that every young person can be the best version of themselves. If you believe in compassion, care and excellence are the basis of a good education for life, then we are the school for you.

We are in Swinton in the City of Salford, minutes from Manchester City Centre. We are a National School of Creativity and one of only two schools in the country to have been awarded Artsmark Platinum. Every day 1100 young people walk through our doors into a caring, supportive and successful school. We believe passionately in sending them out into the world with a love of learning and the skills, knowledge and values that will make a positive difference to them and their community. If you would like to be part of our journey we would love to hear from you.

The closing date for this post is Noon on 26th May, 2017.

Interviews will be held on w/c Monday 12th June, 2017.
