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 the most of every minute of this time.
At Bishop Barrington, you will find a school which is determined to ensure children not only achieve well, but become well educated, well rounded young adults ready to take their place in the world. Underpinning this are our ‘RISE values’: RESPECT, INSPIRATION, RESILIENCE and EXCELLENCE. These values permeate through our curriculum and everyday school life.
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 high quality learning journey, which ends in celebration and enables future prosperity.
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.
