Barnard Castle School is a leading independent day and boarding school set amid stunning countryside in Northern England.

'Barney', as it is affectionately known, provides an exceptional all-round education, with a broad and balanced curriculum, first class facilities and excellent pastoral care within a happy, family environment for boys and girls aged between 4 and 18.

Through creating an inspirational, compassionate and unpretentious environment, the school develops young adults with character, where each child is nurtured and encouraged to develop their full potential.

'Barnardians' are happy, confident, resilient, intellectually curious, tolerant and driven, with an undercurrent of humility, who are ready and prepared to face, embrace and lead in an ever-changing world.

Barnard Castle School's ethos of openness means that it welcomes parents, former pupils and friends of Barney to join its community, and encourages families to visit and experience for themselves the welcoming and happy atmosphere.

Situated in an excellent rural environment, Barnard Castle School is well served by a range of transport links, with several airports and railway stations close by.

Furthermore, Barney has educated many notable former students (known as 'Old Barnardians'), counting professional athletes, television personalities as well as entrepreneurs and business leaders among its alumni.
