Values and vision
Barnfield College aims to deliver the highest standards of learning and teaching, as well as self-development and team improvement. It strives to create a safe and supportive environment that allows students to achieve their goals and fulfil their potential.
Students are expected to work hard, take responsibility for their actions, show respect, be kind and courteous to others, take the lead when addressing issues, and be bold when presenting new ideas.
“Leaders and governors have taken decisive action to place the college on a firm financial footing and as a result have recently invested significant resources to recruit managers and teachers with the appropriate expertise to improve the quality of teaching, learning and assessment. Most teachers and assessors use their industry knowledge and expertise well to enable most students and apprentices to develop good practical skills.”
