BARLBY HIGH SCHOOL IS PART OF

Welcome

Welcome from the Principal

I am delighted to welcome you to Barlby High School and to introduce you to our school. We are a friendly, warm and caring community school. As a relatively small school of 540 students, every child is personally known and cared for. As part of Hope Learning Trust we enjoy the benefits of belonging to a much larger organisation which enables us to develop staff and share resources.

As the Hope Learning Trust continues to grow and succeed, we benefit from collaborating with schools who have a reputation for academic excellence. This year, for the first time, we were able to join the York ISSP partnership, which is an equal partnership of 12 secondary schools – nine state schools and three independent schools. Our students have been able to attend master classes with the aim of providing academic challenge through opportunities which schools cannot provide alone. 

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.’

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. Character development is equally important and my desire is that Barlby High students understand their own self-worth and are confident, compassionate and kind. Last year we introduced the Archbishop of York Young Leaders Award this year 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.

I have been leading the school for just over a year and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know students, staff and the wider community; it really is a team effort.

Below, you can see a short video about our school, which we created for this year’s virtual open evening. Please do take a look and see what makes Barlby High such a special place to learn and grow.
