St Barnabas Pre-school Ofsted inspection: GOOD

Our Pre-school was inspected by Ofsted on 11th July 2016 and the report published on 29th July 2016, it can be found on the Ofsted website using this link or you can download the report in pdf format here

The Ofsted judgement is that 'The quality and standards of the early years provision is GOOD' and the inspector notes that "The outcomes for children are GOOD. Children develop their creativity.   . . . They learn to take appropriate risks, which helps them to build confidence in their own abilities.   . . . . Children progress well towards the next stages in their learning and acquire skills that help support their move to school.'

Spaces are still available for September 2016, for more details please call 07083 690386 or 01689 821353

Friday 18th November at 7:15pm

We are excited to be hosting an unforgettable evening of story telling, theatre, music and mirth with speaker and author Jeff Lucas and the Searchlight Theatre Company.

Tracing the story of Barnabas, a largely overlooked Biblical character who contributed so much to the life of the early church, the evening will help you to live the everyday life in a beautiful way. Barnabas is a tremendous example of generosity, encouragement, believing the best and his life also teaches important lessons about maintaining unity and navigating conflict. 

Poignant, laugh out loud, hilarious, heart warming and occasionally gut wrenching There Are No Ordinary People promises to leave you entertained, inspired and encouraged.

Tickets are available now from the box office at the Early Bird price of 10.45. Online booking fee: up to 45p per ticket.  Please use this link to book your tickets : Searchlight Theatre Box Office
