Barlby High School has a warm and caring ethos and students are supported by excellent professional relationships developed between staff and students. The welfare of our students is at the very centre of everything that we do.
Students are supported by form tutors and heads of year who ensure that students quickly settle into the life of the school and any concerns raised are quickly dealt with.
We have high expectations of all our students in every area of school life, including uniform and behaviour, which leads to an atmosphere of purposeful learning. Our behaviour policy seeks to reward students and encourage a positive and supportive environment.
We strive to develop close relationships with parents and carers and encourage you to take a close interest in the progress of your children through regular communication with school. We regularly use text and email to ensure parents are fully informed and best able to support the individual needs of students to achieve the best possible learning outcomes for them.
Our school is an exciting place to learn. It creates opportunities to broaden the range of experiences available to our students, helping to build confidence and self-esteem. There are a wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer such as science club, music ‘Jam’, Key Stage 4 (KS4) band, Key Stage 3 (KS3) DJ Club, Choir, Art and History Club. Many students use the Library at lunch time to read or to play board games.
