Welcome to our school website.

At St Barnabas we strive to help every child to, ‘achieve great things’ and live ‘life in all its fullness’ by inspiring them with rich, fun experiences and equipping them with a love of learning. Our school has a strong Christian ethos built on our core Gospel values which the children chose themselves: Trust, Forgiveness,Friendship, Generosity, Respect, Service and Courage. St Barnabas was known in the Bible as an encourager so we try to follow his example and encourage others. With close links with our parish church, other schools in our multi-academy Trust and our dedicated team of staff, governors and parents, we take pride in, “Learning and growing together in a love-filled Christian family”. 

We would welcome you to come along and visit our school as ‘Every day is an open day at St Barnabas’. If you would like to arrange a visit then please contact our school office on 01254 702996 or email [email protected] Please check out our school twitter feed @stbarnabasce or our gallery to see all of the fun things we get up to at St Barnabas.
