Safe Return to Boarding at Barney

I wish you a warm welcome to Barnard Castle School. To those new to ‘Barney’, we are based in beautiful Teesdale in North East England, a 2.5 hour train ride from London, meaning that Boarding at Barney provides a rural, family setting where young people can flourish within extensive outdoor space.

During the recent COVID-19 crisis our pupils have enjoyed our Home Learning @ Barney programme. Following a successful phased reopening of our site to Day pupils, we are now planning the safe return of our Boarding pupils to Barney in September.

By clicking on the image above, you can access our ‘Safe Return to Boarding at Barney’ document, which outlines our plans and reassures families that the health, safety and welfare of our pupils and staff remains our first priority.

Every measure we put in place is both guided by and subject to the most up-to-date government guidance, as well as based on the advice of professional bodies and, as such, updates will be communicated as they are released.

Please enjoy this glimpse into Boarding at Barney from September 2020.

Mr A C Jackson
