Welcome to Barrow C.E. Primary School

Welcome to Barrow CE Primary School 

‘Let your light shine’ Matthew 5:16

We are proud to welcome you to Barrow CE Primary School which is situated in the village of Great Barrow in the heart of the Cheshire countryside 5 miles from the historic city of Chester.

Our small school was founded in 1865 in an historic Victorian building set in attractive school grounds. It is full of character and is a place where creative teaching meets with traditional values. 

Our school has three classes:

Acorn Class: Reception and Year One September 2020 17 pupils

Oak Class: Year Two and Three September 2020 9 pupils

Willow Class: Years Four, Five and Six September 2020 21 pupils

All members of our school team work hard to foster a love of learning in our pupils and our creative, vibrant curriculum enables them to shine. We have high expectations of all of our pupils and provide them with motivating learning experiences to help them achieve their optimum potential.  We are strong advocates of Forest School and all of our classes enjoy this experience every week. Additionally, we make the most of our large school grounds to learn outside the classroom.

Our beautiful school grounds are surrounded by farmland. We have a large playground with a trim trail, forest school area, mud kitchen, school allotment and large playing fields. We have a well-stocked reading shed which the children can use at playtime to enjoy books and stories together. The school has its own pond, orchard and wildlife area where children can enjoy and learn about nature.

Barrow School is a focal point of the village and our friendly community. We are especially proud of our strong Christian ethos and family atmosphere that runs throughout the school. This is reflected in happy, polite children and the caring and considerate attitudes they show to everyone who is part of our school family.

We would be delighted to show you around our lovely school. If you would like any further information or would like to arrange a visit, please contact Ms Hughes in the school office.


Headteacher: Mrs Lucy Wainwright

Chair of Governing Body: Mr John Armstrong
