Welcome to St Ambrose Barlow RC Sixth Form

Welcome to St. Ambrose Barlow RC Sixth Form College; a brand new building and a brand new educational centre for post 16 students.

We want hard working pupils from any school in Salford or other local schools to apply to our Sixth Form. 


About us

We are looking to offer an outstanding education to students leaving school, who wish to continue their studies onto University courses or employment. We have a long established reputation as being an excellent educational establishment, and we are excited to be offering new courses to older students. We are looking forward to continuing working with current St Ambrose Barlow students and welcoming students from other schools who would like to study with us.

Facilities available

The new Sixth Form has a Student Resource area for independent study, computer workstations and a resource library. The Sixth Form will be separate from the main school building and facilities, having its own café, restaurant and common room for students to spend time and socialise. Not only will the new Sixth Form centre be the perfect place for students to further their education, but will be a centre of educational excellence with first class facilities supporting the courses on offer. It will be an exciting place to learn with tutors who have a wealth of expertise in their subject.

The Sixth Form has modern class rooms, large workshops filled with state of the art computers and equipment to allow students to study using the very latest professional software and design packages. The Art Department has an artist in residence in the Sixth Form, allowing us to provide a unique opportunity for students to gain valuable experience. Our Sports Department boasts exceptional facilities for all sports both indoor and out!  We are proud that our ICT Department can offer the very latest technology including an Apple Mac suite, PC suite, TV Green Screen filming and a Sound Recording Studio.

Additional support

The purpose of the Sixth Form is for all students to finish their time at St. Ambrose Barlow as well rounded adults, and in addition to their chosen courses, we offer a wide range of enrichment activities that will help your personal development. We aim to continue our schools sporting success with provision to participate in a variety of sports, trips will be organised to build awareness of future possibilities, community projects and charity which are great ways to give something back to society. Activities outside the classroom are a great way to meet new friends, discover new interests, relax and develop your skills – there will be something for everybody.

Learner success

One reason for the success of St. Ambrose Barlow High School is the high expectations that each member has: parents expect excellent care for their children, students come to us knowing they are being taught by outstanding teachers, giving the guidance that will allow them to achieve outstanding results and staff have high expectations of all students. It is this collaboration, which becomes the support network that allows our students to push themselves to achieve great things. Students at the Sixth Form should expect to come to a high achieving education centre that will help them on their path to a better future.
