At St Ambrose Barlow we aim to do things differently. This means that we prepare our students for life, work and learning after school. We are involved in the latest educational research, in partnerships with universities and businesses and have a strong alliance with other schools thanks to our Teaching School status. Pupils entering school now can expect to live long lives, enjoy varied careers of over 20 different jobs and will face some significant challenges. The world changes fast and we believe our school needs to keep up. That's why we do things differently.
