A school where everyone grows in God's Love and achieves their full potential

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you find all the information you need about our lovely school, but if there is anything further you require, please do not hesitate to contact me at school. If you have general queries then Miss Eyre, our school Business Officer, will do her best to answer them.

St Thomas' is a small voluntary aided school, 122 pupils divided into 4 classes which is in a relatively new building on the outskirts  of Barrowford.

Our school provides a caring, happy and friendly educational environment in which children are encouraged to reach their full potential in a nurturing Christian environment.  We aim for good manners, mutual respect and social awareness to go hand in hand with high standards of achievement in academic work. We aim to educate the whole child, so we promote sport, drama and music to support learning in Literacy, Maths, Science and the foundation subjects.

Being a small school means we know all of our children very well; their personalities, abilities and worries. We are able to quickly respond to changes in their needs and adapt the teaching and learning accordingly. Our children love to learn and this is evident to all who visit us here at St Thomas'.

We have a dedicated team of conscientious staff and Governors, hard working children and supportive parents, which produces a warm, flourishing family community of children and adults. Please enjoy looking through our website pages, and hopefully they will give you a flavour of our happy and thriving school.

Thank you.

Mrs J Duckworth



Our Vision

At Barrowford St Thomas our vision is that pupils will have a positive experience and understanding of Christianity, developing their own spirituality.

They will feel accepted, loved, valued, respected and secure.

Through a rich and creative curriculum, our pupils will flourish, deepening their knowledge and developing their skills and enthusiasm for life-long learning.

Psalm 92 vs 13-14

'They are like trees planted in the house of the Lord that flourish in the temple of our God, that still bear fruit in old age and are always green and strong.'

Mission Statement

Our mission is to be a school where all can flourish and grow in God's love.
