Welcome to Barrow C.E. Primary School

Welcome to Barrow CE Primary School 

Our small, village school is situated in Barrow in rural Cheshire, five miles from the city of Chester. Founded in Victorian times in 1865, the school is awash with character and is a place where forward and progressive thinking meets with traditional values. The school consists of five main teaching areas, all with interactive whiteboards. In 2014 we opened our new hall and kitchen, which increased our floor print by one third.

The school grounds are surrounded by farmland. Together with a large playground and a playing field for the children to use at break times and for sporting activities, the school has its own pond, orchard and wildlife area where children learn much about our natural environment. We are a keen advocate of Forest Schools.

Barrow School is a focal point of the village and our vibrant community. We are especially proud of our strong Christian ethos and family atmosphere that permeates throughout the school. This is reflected in the polite and well mannered children and the caring and considerate attitudes they show towards each other and to everyone who is part of our team.

If you would like further information on our school 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
