The Barlow in the News

Feedback from parents tells us you want to not only hear about the school's developments and successes but to see related photographs. Stories and photos of pupils' achievements are often communicated to the press and are a source of pleasure and pride. Our aim is to share our news with you and the wider community, through both our own publications and the media.
