Barlby High School is an 11-16 comprehensive school which serves a mixed catchment 12 miles south of York. The school has a population of around 580 students; we are a friendly, warm and caring community school. Character development is crucially important and our desire is that Barlby High students understand their own self-worth and are confident, compassionate and kind. Academic success is equally important as it is the foundation for the next stage of school life and gives students the opportunity to choose their future career path.

We are a member of the York ISSP partnership, which is an equal partnership of 12 secondary schools – nine state schools and three independent schools. Our students have been able to attend master classes with the aim of providing academic challenge through opportunities which schools cannot provide alone.

Our vision is that every child should flourish and develop a real love for learning. We want the very best for all our students and have high expectations for them. This is born from the belief that every child is full of potential and has a unique part to play in society. We want every member of our school community to ‘Live Life to the Full’.
