Get the latest news from The Frances Bardsley Academy. RSS feeds automatically update whenever we add news stories to the site.

What is RSS?

RSS stands for "really simple syndication". These help you stay in touch with many different sources of news and information. It's quicker than revisiting a site several times a day to check for updates and, rather than having to look for new stories, RSS readers scan for updates and display them for you.

RSS Readers

RSS readers are free to download and are available for most devices. Once you have a RSS reader on your desktop, laptop or mobile device you can add or remove RSS feeds of your choice. 

Once you have installed a feed reader you can add FBA News RSS feeds by clicking the links below:
