Our vision is that every child should flourish and develop a real love for learning. We want the very best for all our students and have high expectations for them. This is born from the belief that every child is full of potential and has a unique part to play in society. We want every member of our school community to ‘Live life to the full.’
As a school, character development is paramount and our aim is that Barlby High students understand their own self-worth and are confident, compassionate and kind. The Archbishop of York Young Leaders Award and other opportunities such as visits to Taize and working with communities in Malawi and Romania are at the centre of helping our young people to live as part of community, developing others as well as themselves.
Academic success is important as it is the foundation for the next stage of school life and gives students the opportunity to choose their future career path.
Our school values are kindness, loyalty, patience, justice, grace, forgiveness and compassion and we aim to look for ways to put these into action in all school activity.
Kindness: Being friendly, generous, and considerate towards others. Often means going out of our way to treat others well.
Loyalty: Being faithful towards others.
Patience: Being able to cope with problems or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.
Justice: Being able to behave in a way that is morally right and fair towards others.
Grace: Treating people better than they deserve. This includes being courteous, kind, and pleasant towards others.
Forgiveness: Intentional and voluntary process of letting go of negative emotions towards others, ‘letting someone off the hook’.
Compassion: Responding to others with warmth and care.
Fantastic home learning coming through from Yr 8! Hopefully my campaign to have a @Barlby_High house named after Janusz Korczak will succeed with your help! @yadvashem @HolocaustUK @UCL_Holocaust pic.twitter.com/b7vf…
