About Us

Welcome to Barton Clough Primary Academy, part of Bright Futures Educational Trust. 

Situated in the Borough of Trafford, set back from busy roads, along a tree-lined path, Barton Clough sits in an urban oasis of long-established woods. Our facility benefits from extensive grounds with a developing Forest School area and farm.

The school building offers spacious light-filled learning spaces and we are at the start of an exciting refurbishment programme, funded by the significant investment from Bright Futures.  

At Barton Clough we seek to find a place in education for all, to build and foster a love and passion for learning through the belief that all subjects matter, where Art is as important as Maths, or English as important as Dance or Music.

Learning for our children starts in our fabulous Early Years class where the children follow, ‘The Curiosity Approach’, immersed in authentic, hands-on learning experiences that nurture their natural curiosity in an environment filled with awe and wonder. From September 2021, our Early Years and Year 1 children will also have regular access to our new Forest School provision.

Our bespoke curriculum in Key Stage 1 and 2 is built to engage our children in learning that seeks to create artists, writers, historians and mathematicians. This curriculum nurtures individuals, who know themselves, are tolerant of others and aims to equip them with the skills and desire to make a difference in our community and the wider world; to become truly kind and global citizens. 

At Barton Clough we offer our children the very best start in their education. Please contact us for a tour and see our wonderful school in action.
