Congratulations to Mr Ramsden

Many of you will know that Mr Ramsden has been Headteacher here at Barrow School since 2008. The School has enjoyed a period of progress and stability under Mr Ramsden's leadership, most notably with the addition of a splendid new hall and kitchen, a steady increase in pupil numbers, and successive 'good' ratings from OFSTED together with an 'outstanding' rating from SIAMS.

Over recent weeks, Mr Ramsden has been applying for headships at other schools to develop and progress his career.

I am pleased to inform all pupils, parents, and all involved in the school community that Mr Ramsden has been appointed as Headteacher at Oxton St Saviour’s CE Aided Primary School, Prenton, Wirral.

I am sure all will join the governing body in sincerely congratulating Mr Ramsden on his success.

I anticipate Mr Ramsden will take up his new role in January 2018.

Over the course of the summer break, the governing body will commence plans for the appointment of a new Headteacher here at Barrow, but in the meantime - very well done Mr Ramsden, and I hope everyone enjoys a relaxing summer break.
