Welcome to Barnwell School

June 2022 - Barnwell School marks PRIDE Month.

Across the globe, various events are held during this special month as a way of recognising the influence LGBTQ+ people have had around the world.

With a young transgender actress set to star in Doctor Who and Jake Daniels coming out as the first gay professional footballer in 32 years, the LGBTQ+ community has had a lot to celebrate recently.

The UK marks 50 years of the Pride movement and Barnwell School will taking part in various curriculum and extra-curricular activities through the month.

In recent years we have seen positive changes unfolding both nationally and locally. Changes that by in large were born out of grassroots activism, beginning with the voices of a few and multiplying into a powerful roar that demands it be noticed. Such voices gave rise to the Black Lives Matter, MeToo and Climate Change movements. LGBTQ+ movements are no different.

Barnwell School will play its part on this important journey in creating an inclusive environment where LGBTQ+ members of our community can feel safe, valued and a visible part of our school. Achieving Excellence Together.

At Barnwell we believe that all students should strive to fulfil both their academic and personal potential. We recognise that by setting ambitious academic targets and encouraging all students to become fully immersed in the student experience and the rich extra-curricular life of the school we can all achieve excellence together.

We care passionately about your child’s character, their personality and social skills, the way they treat others and the contribution they will make to society. We actively promote a culture where students feel safe particularly through a supportive and well-disciplined environment and our inclusive College system. Relationships between staff and students at Barnwell are exceptionally strong and this ethos is built on trust and confidence.

From experience we know that students learn, progress and achieve differently. As a truly comprehensive school we aim to ensure that the education we provide is aimed and adapted to individual needs. We provide a broad curriculum to ensure students achieve individual success in their journey from Year 7 through to our vibrant Sixth Form.

We recognise that it takes a whole community to educate a child, and so we are committed to working in partnership with parents, carers, other organisations and establishments to provide the very best opportunities.
