Teacher of the Year Award 2015 – Chris Kent
We are very proud of Chris Kent, Achievement Leader Years 8/9 & PE teacher for winning the Teacher of the Year award last night at the Selby and Goole Times. Chris was nominated and won due to her incredible work with young people at Barlby High and through the Young Leader scheme working with KS4 students supporting in local primary schools. Thoroughly deserved!
Congratulations to Shaun Crouch (former year 11 who we nominated) who received runner up in the Bright Star award!

BARLBY HIGH SCHOOL
Thank you for visiting our website. We are an 11-16 years school that takes pride in knowing all our students as individuals and allowing them to flourish. As a school, we believe we are small enough to care, and big enough to make a difference.
We aim to ensure that all students feel safe, happy and settled in school. We have a very strong pastoral care team that leads on this work.
Our vision can be summed up with the words “Enjoy. Believe. Achieve.” These key words underpin all the work done in the school daily. Through our sports specialism we challenge everyone to be the best they can be. For Academic Achievement, we were awarded national recognition by the SSAT for being in the top 20% of all schools for pupil progress.
We recognise every student is an individual at Barlby, with different needs and talents. We are committed to ensuring that all learners develop and achieve their potential, preparing them to achieve future success on leaving school. We have excellent facilities for a school our size, particularly in our specialist area of sport, with a new 3G Astro Pitch, Sports Hall, Dance Studio, Gym and Swimming Pool.
No prospectus or website can truly reflect a school. We warmly encourage visits so that the unique ethos and feeling we have here can be experienced first hand.
ENJOY, BELIEVE, ACHIEVE.
