As someone who has worked at Barrow Hills for a number of years in a variety of departments, I truly believe in its ethos. For a school that aspires to educate the whole person, one would expect the highest levels of pastoral care and this is what we provide.
The most important thing for me is that the staff know the children, their strengths as well as their weaknesses, what makes them ‘tick’ and what makes them happy. Staff give children the time they need to get to know them, they care about their happiness and aim to develop the thoughtful, caring side of their characters as well as their intellect and ambition.
Our children come back to visit with a fondness for the school which gave them an excellent all-round preparatory experience.
