Values and vision
Barr's Hill School & Community College, as a smaller secondary school, prides itself on having what it views as a very special family atmosphere. It places huge emphasis on ensuring its students feel supported and happy.
The school is committed to building a community where learning and enquiry is the cornerstone of all it does. As a result of this, academic progress and attainment is monitored closely to ensure the school is continually stretching its students and to ensure that their progress is rapid. The school focuses on each student individually in an attempt to ensure they reach their true potential.
“Pupils who are taught in small groups benefit from good teaching. Pupils who speak English as an additional language are well supported overall and achieve at least as well as other pupils in the school. The curriculum meets pupils’ needs well, including learners in the sixth form, with a range of pathways and experiences provided for them, including citizenship and religious education.”
