Barnard Castle School owes its existence to philanthropic endeavour among Victorians who were motivated to improve the educational opportunities in the North of England for young people. Support from individuals and organisations who are keen to see the school continue to flourish and develop remains the bedrock upon which our community is based. Giving comes in many forms – what is important to us is building and maintaining a sense of community of which alumni and families, donors and supporters past and present feel a part and where every contribution is valued.
The Barnard Castle School Foundation
The Foundation was formed in 2016 to be the focus of the school’s fundraising efforts for capital projects and the expansion of our long-standing bursary programme. It provides a structured approach to support future growth through the generation of funds, and the coming years will see a range of fundraising initiatives that will contribute to the school’s ambitious development plan.
We have identified two priority projects:
A dedicated Chemistry and Biology Building
A Sports Hub adjacent to the playing fields.
These two developments will, in turn, create the opportunity to allow the redevelopment of existing facilities into new Art studios.
Whether your interest is in these capital projects or the expansion of our significant bursaries provision, we welcome all support. To discuss your support confidentially, please contact our Development Office in school.
