Barrowford St Thomas C.E. Primary School

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



We have four classes in our small school.

  • Class 1 is mainly a Reception class although Year 1 pupils do become part of the class, mainly in the afternoons.
  • Class 2 is a mixed-aged Year 1 and Year 2 class. Year 1 and Year 2 cohorts are split each morning for English, phonics, guided reading and mathematics. 
  • Class 3 is a mixed-aged Year 3 and 4 (lower junior) class.
  • Class 4 is a mixed-aged Year 5 and 6 (lower junior) class.
