Our School will not be going where the path may lead, but will go instead where there is no path and leave a trail

Welcome to Barrow 1618 Church of England Primary Free School 

Barrow 1618 Church of England Primary Free School is genuinely a community in action: a small school making a big difference. Welcome to our website; I hope you will find it interesting and informative. If you have any questions that aren’t answered here, please do contact us directly and we’ll be happy to help.

 

Our school was opened in September 2012, under the Free School legislation and occupies the site of one of Shropshire’s oldest known schools, founded in 1618 for the local working boys of the area. 

 

Today, our school maintains that rich, historic heritage, whilst blending state-of-the-art modern facilities and breathtaking, rural surroundings. It is free to attend and caters for pupils from Reception to Year 6.

 

Our unique, innovative curriculum centres on learning opportunities presented by the natural environment and learning through 'hands-on' experience. We champion the highest academic standards and progress, whilst recognising that every child will have strengths, interests and talents in different areas. We will look for, identify, fulfil and extend our children’s potential, wherever that lies, to provide an educational experience they’ll remember for a lifetime.

 

We believe that our school and its community can make a difference. Fundamental to our Christian Values is the role of service in our wider community and our children learn from a young age that they have an important and powerful responsibility. The ‘Barrow Values’ provide a nurturing, positive framework in which to develop independence, tolerance, enterprise, imagination and resilience: skills for life.

 

Our site also hosts the wonderful 'Barrow Village Preschool', which caters early years provision for children from 2 years old. Please visit their website by clicking here

 

In 2018, our school marked a milestone: 400 years since a school in Barrow first opened its doors to the local community. Now, as then, we have much to be proud of - we are a thriving, creative, diverse and supportive school in which every unique talent and interest can find a space to blossom. Our highly skilled team of professionals are passionate about the future of our school and its pupils and we very much look forward to sharing our school with you.
