School / Information / Prospectus


Dear Parents, Carers, Students and Friends

Thank you for taking an interest in our school.  We recognise that choosing a secondary school is one of the most important decisions parents, carers and children will ever take. Schools are in the privileged position of helping to shape young lives.  At Bishop Barrington, we take this responsibility very seriously.  We believe that a child only has one school life and, together, we must make it count.

Students at Bishop Barrington do well. They enjoy and achieve within a strong ethos of learning and support. Standards have risen year on year and our students leave us ready to take their place in society as confident, caring and responsible young adults.
Our school also prides itself on its strong partnership between home and school. Parents are an important part of our learning community and we value their contribution to school life.

We share the same aim – to get the best for our children.

All of the staff at Bishop Barrington work hard to ensure that students are happy, safe and cared for.  We believe that teaching should inspire and enthuse so that children develop a life long love of learning. We also believe that every child is entitled to a personalised, supported learning journey, which ends in success.  Above all, we want to promote a springboard for a bright future for all children in our care.

I hope that you find this prospectus informative and interesting. It provides a flavour of life at Bishop Barrington School.

If you would like more information, or would like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact me.
