Set in 50 acres of stunning grounds close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Barnard Castle School is a vibrant, happy and purposeful day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 4-18.
With an excellent academic record, first class facilities and outstanding pastoral care, it offers all students the chance to excel both inside and outside the classroom. A dedicated, purpose-built Sixth Form Centre opened in 2015.
The school, which counts Director of England Rugby Rob Andrew, the founder of Hotel Chocolate Angus Thirlwell and designer Patrick Grant among its alumni, is renowned for its family atmosphere and opportunities offered to students. The school’s ethos of openness means that it welcomes parents, former pupils and friends of the school to join in and promote a sense of pride, endeavour and tremendous fun.
