There is an excitement around boarding at Barney. Despite the challenging times independent schools are facing, recruitment of boarding pupils at Barney is growing both from within our own school community and from areas beyond the locality.
The House system at Barney forms the bedrock of our pastoral care; our Housemasters and Housemistresses are prominent leaders within the school for their pupils and their families, and also for the teams of tutors they line-manage. The four Boarding Houses and five Day Houses compete fiercely across a wealth of competitions and activities, spanning sports and the arts, to ensure they are the House that ‘Nails Up’ in true Barney tradition at the end of each term. Despite this healthy competition, close relationships are at the heart of our community and our Boarding Housemasters and Mistresses are role models in championing their pupils.
Our team of Housemasters and Housemistresses, matrons and tutors have created an environment that pupils aspire to part of; it is one of warmth and nurture, enthusiasm and House spirit and, overwhelmingly, a sense of family.
We envisage the successful candidate forming an integral part of this team; someone who understands what it means to be a Barnardian and who is going to help us develop our boarding provision further to be sector leading.
If you think that you have the commitment and drive to be part of the ‘Barney’ family, we look forward to hearing from you.
