The Barlow supports a variety of charities:

St Josephs Penny 19.6.14

St Joseph's Penny - In the season of Lent our pupils come together as a community to raise money for our local charity, St. Joseph's Penny. The pupils donate their own money and organise activities to help raise funds for this fantastic organisation. Well done to all our pupils and staff for their hard work and generosity. Further details on this year's presentation can be found at

Francis House - Based in Didsbury, Francis House is a children's hospice that offers respite for families and care for children with a short life expectancy. In February 2014, our students presented Francis House with a cheque for £500.




Cornerstone Day Centre - We raise money for Cornerstone Day Centre to help homeless people in Manchester and were happy to present them with a cheque for £1000 at the end of the Autumn Term 2013.



In partnership with Lynda Waine, one of our School Governors, we raise money throughout the year to send to Cochabamba in Bolivia to buy much needed school supplies and equipment for orphaned and abandoned children.




SVP (Saint Vincent de Paul Society) - Every Christmas, we donate food parcels to the SVP groups connected to our neighbouring parishes. The food goes directly to those who need it in our local community.




RNIB - Our school office staff help support The Royal National Institute of the Blind People. They ensure they collect and send off stamps from all the post received by the school. The money raised by collecting stamps helps support the charity in offering information, support and advice to anyone with a sight problem.
