Barrow 1618 Church of England Free School is a small, local school that was set up by parents using the Free School legislation. The school is Church of England, state funded and free to attend for pupils from Reception through to Year 6. The site is also the setting for the excellent Little Acorns Montessori Nursery which has recently been judged as outstanding by Ofsted, in addition to their main site at Morville Village Hall.
