Welcome to Barr’s Hill School

IMG_9121Welcome to Barr’s Hill School.

Barr’s Hill School was established in 1908 as a Girls Grammar school and although it has changed considerably in the last 109 years, our high expectations and academic curriculum remains the same. As a smaller school, we place emphasis on ensuring our students feel supported and happy, focusing on an ongoing drive for high academic standards and achieving life goals from any starting point.

Barr’s Hill School has an exciting future ahead. With the support of The Futures Trust, we aspire to build Barr’s Hill into a truly outstanding school. Our passionate, caring and driven staff work incredibly hard to ensure all our students are successful and have the opportunity to progress onto Post-16 Select, our popular sixth form joint venture with President Kennedy School.

From September 2018, we will be opening a dedicated Year 7 Hub called ‘The Bridge’. The Bridge will ensure that we give our new Year 7’s the best possible transition experience. Our Year 7 students will be guaranteed a flying start in secondary education and will work with specialist teachers to ensure that they all make rapid progress from day one.

Our Values are clear and lived by all our staff:

Student’s First – all staff, governors and parents focused upon the education of all our students.

It’s about learning – students, all staff, governors and parents focused upon developing and improving the learning of students.

No Barriers – no excuses, only support, to ensure students, all staff, governors and parents maximise the academic achievement of students whilst enabling them to develop and flourish as well rounded individuals.

We hope this website provides you with some useful information about our school. We are happy to welcome visitors for a tour and should you have any questions, please contact us here.

For more information, see our about us page. For any upcoming events, please visit events.
