Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website and we hope this gives you a flavour of what we have to offer our families.​

Barlow is part of The White Rose Federation of schools, a three school family 'branching out together' to make the education of our children truly exceptional. 

At Barlow, your child is valued for their individuality, nurtured to ensure they achieve their best, given every opportunity to grow in confidence, enabling them to contribute positively to our school family. ​ We are proud of our church school status and we endeavour to live out our core values of friendship​, endurance and peace each day.  They underpin all that we do, being supported by the Diocese of York and our dedicated team of staff, governors, parents and carers.

We see education as a partnership between your home and our school. We provide an exciting and inclusive, happy and caring school in which we have high expectations for all our pupils. ​

We are so pleased to announce that, following a two day Ofsted inspection  in June 2019, we have been graded as a Good school in all areas. We are so proud of the team across the federation and the report reflects the effort and commitment shown by the pupils, staff, governors and families at Barlow School to provide the very best learning opportunities for our children.

Choosing the right school for your child is crucial. We firmly believe that Barlow is a special place and we always welcome visits to our school from prospective parents at any point in the school year. This gives us the opportunity to share with you our passion for learning and our commitment to our children and their families. If you are new to Barlow, then I hope that you are able to find all the information you need on this website. If you have any other questions, please contact me directly at the school.
