Welcome to St Ambrose Barlow
Catholic Primary School

Welcome to our Website

On behalf of the children, governors and staff of Saint Ambrose Barlow Catholic Primary School may I welcome you to our school’s website. We hope that our website will give you an idea of what makes Saint Ambrose Barlow the special, spiritual and enriching environment we are all so proud of.

At Saint Ambrose Barlow we believe that every child is a unique being, created in the image of God. Within our school, we seek to create a happy, friendly and supportive environment, where every child has the opportunity to develop spiritually, intellectually and socially. As a distinctly Catholic school we take pride in our school’s mission statement – ‘I have come that they may have life and have it to the full’ and strive to live it out each and every day.  It is the aim of everyone in our school to provide the best possible opportunities for the children in our care and to help them grow in their journey of faith, with Gospel values at the centre of everything we do.

In our school, children are encouraged to aim for the highest possible standards by providing a range of exciting opportunities and experiences within our broad and balanced curriculum. Our dedicated staff play an integral role in fostering a family atmosphere, where children feel secure and are able to thrive.

Mr Doherty and Saint Ambrose Barlow Team
