Barrow 1618 CofE Free School is a primary school with a Christian ethos in Barrow, Shropshire. The school, which opened in 2012, is exceptionally small in size, catering for up to 90 students when full. It is located on the site of a former school for local working boys which was founded in 1618. Every week, the children have the opportunity to participate in a 'Forest School' lesson at the school's very own three acre forest site. The school's Christian values mean that the students are taught from a young age that everyone holds a responsibilty towards their wider community. In 2016, the school received an Outstanding judgement from Ofsted.
