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 Church School ethos is distinct and is supported by Christian values that run through our curriculum and underpin all that we do. It is our mission to ensure that all of our pupils feel valued as unique children of God.

Our school has two classes:

Acorn Class: Reception, Year One and Year Two 

Willow Class: Years Three, Four, Five and Six 

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 Miss Hughes-Whilding in the school office.
