Barnwell School "Achieving Excellent Together"

Secondary Stevenage Borough



Barnwell serves the communities of South Stevenage and the surrounding villages although many students also travel from further afield to Barnwell for their education. The School is unique in the area as it is situated on two campuses allowing the school to be structured as a Middle and Upper School. What we offer is unique in Stevenage and North Hertfordshire. Both the Middle and Upper School are very distinctive and are personalised to the ages of the students they serve but both are underpinned by the same expectations and high standards that originate from Barnwell School’s vision: Achieving Excellence Together Our Vision is to create and deliver outstanding educational experiences for every student at Barnwell School. We achieve this through: • valuing every student as an individual, ensuring they realise their potential by providing an aspirational and engaging curriculum • delivering the highest standards of teaching and learning to ensure excellent progress and achievement that inspires all our students • ensuring no matter what the starting point, outstanding progress is achievable by all • supporting student growth and development through our close caring community ethos of respect and tolerance for others and building a sense of belonging • providing a learning environment which is both stimulating and supportive, whilst fostering excellence and independence • inspiring a culture and thirst for lifelong learning based on motivation, challenge, praise and reward to enable students to achieve their goals in life • building positive partnerships with parents and the local community to widen opportunities and secure high quality outcomes for all of our students
