Thank you very much for taking an interest in Barton School, which is a Church of England Voluntary Aided School for girls and boys age 4+ to 11+. The information on our website explains our philosophy, aims and organisation, and Barton's strengths as a Church of England school.
We firmly believe that the recipe for success is a strong partnership between home and school. Together we share the responsibility for the all-round development of your child. Confidence in the school comes from knowing and understanding what is happening within it. We have lots of fun as well as striving hard to help our children get the most from their education.
Comberton Playground Project
From Caroline Abraham:
"Comberton Playground Project is a charity based in Comberton run by parents and community volunteers who aim to regenerate Comberton's community playground. We have raised £100,000 to date and have approximately £30,000 left to raise. We have been shortlisted for the Engage Mutual Community Fund to receive a possible £25,000 but we need to collect as many votes as we can to be in with a chance."
"Your vote could help us secure £25,000 towards our project. Voting will take 5 minutes and will mean so much to our children and families if we can receive this award and finish off our project."
"We are also continuing on with our fundraising events and have a Charity Music event arranged this Saturday 26th April at the Comberton Sports and Arts in Comberton at 7:30pm. Please join us for a fantastic evening of live acoustic music from four very talented, local artists. Please see details in the two posters below on how to Vote or buy tickets for our Music event."
"Thank you for your support."
During the last week of term, some of our pupils helped staff from Shepreth Hedgehog Hospital to release six hedgehogs in an area behind the church. A reporter from the Cambridge News came along to watch, and we are delighted that the hedgehog release has been featured in one of their slideshows this week (click here to open the Cambridge News page in a new window).
