Longfield House

Welcome to Longfield House.

Being a Boarding Housemaster is a privilege and I am looking forward to supporting you in your Barney journey. I am joined in this role by Mrs Lavery and our two daughters, Elodie and Harriet.

We view the Longfield family very much as an extension of our own family and are excited to be sharing this experience with you.

As a French and German teacher, and keen sportsman and musician, I value every girl’s contribution to the broad range of activities here at Barney. So, whether in the classroom, on the sports field or stage, in public speaking or cake decorating, I hope you arrive in Longfield determined to reach beyond your comfort zone and represent our House in the coveted race to Nail Up at the end of each term!

Our Assistant Housemistress, Mrs Dawson, as well as our Matron, Mrs Flack, and our wonderful team of tutors are here to support you every step of the way, and we look forward to getting to know you and your families.

Mr Peter Lavery
Longfield Housemaster
