Hire our facilities


Barrow Sixth Form has a range of great facilities now available for hire at evenings, weekends and during the holidays.

Whether you want to hire the entire college for your conference, perform in our 200-seater professional theatre or move your team to our spacious sports hall for winter – we have the venue for you.

We recently hosted TV legend David Dickinson for his ITV Real Deal programme and the national Model Railway Exhibition is held here annually, providing on-site catering that is second to none.

Everyone is welcome to use the facilities, from businesses to local clubs and groups who require a regular meeting space. We currently host the Hands in Song drama group, netball and football teams and even Bubble Football Cumbria parties.

We offer good value – our current sports hall prices are £25 for an hour or £22 an hour for a regular booking.

What our guests say:

The children were amazed by the space and, as a result, their professionalism, behaviour and enthusiasm were doubled. It was amazing to see their growth over the three days. As a result we came away inspired and will continue to use the space in holidays Claire Mills Hands in Song Creative Drama Services
To say that the college catering was excellent is an understatement, in over 230 appearances we have never been fed so well.Allan Judd, Gwizz Garden Railway Display Team
