Welcome to

St Barnabas CE Primary Academy

Preparing our children to shine brightly

Dear Parents and Carers,

St Barnabas is a vibrant school in the heart of Openshaw. We place a strong emphasis on the individual child and encourage our children to make the most of each opportunity, in order to gain the best from their education within our Christian setting. We work with the children to help them prepare for the ever-changing world in which we live, and to develop their skills in order to sustain life-long learning as well as strong self-belief and spirituality.

I consider it a privilege to be able to work with you and your children and know that together we can build a community of which we can be proud.  We hope that you find our website clear and informative, and if you have any further questions or queries do not hesitate to call us.
