The Church

As a church school we have close links with the village church, St Mary Magdalene’s. School Assemblies are regularly held there especially to celebrate Christian Festivals; Easter, Harvest, Christmas. Our annual Christmas Performance by the children is held there.

The local parish priest, Rev. Ruth Pyke, is a frequent visitor to the school and regularly leads collective worship.
We also welcome clergy from other churches to deliver assemblies and contribute to religious education within school; the Pastor from Anstey and the GenR8 team from Royston Community Church are regular visitors.

Barkway Community Group

Members of this village group frequently come into school to help in very many ways. They are cooks and gardeners, artists and historians – the list is endless. We very much appreciate them sharing their time and knowledge with us.

 

Barkway Street Market and Village Fete

The school plays an active part in these important events on the village calendar. Our playground becomes full of stalls at the Street Market and for the fete our children give a country dance display.
