School Life

At Barrow Hills, school life is supported by our beautiful 33-acre estate providing children with on-site opportunities for outside learning, informal play, a variety of sporting activities as well as co-curricular activities.

At the heart of the estate is Great Roke, an Arts and Crafts former country house completed in 1909, which is complete with formal Gertrude Jekyll gardens; a truly inspiring environment in which to grow and learn.

Supporting the specialist teaching we offer at Barrow Hills, our children enjoy and benefit from a wealth of dedicated facilities. In addition, our partner school King Edward’s Witley provides our children with access to facilities beyond the reach of most stand-alone preparatory schools.
