The curriculum is provided in a structured and supportive environment and is planned to meet the personal, academic and pastoral needs of the pupils at each stage of their schooling.

New Barn School offers an education which exposes pupils’ to a broad, balanced, differentiated and relevant curriculum, presents them with challenges in which creativity is fostered and which is based on the essential elements of the National Curriculum.

The school has an excellent adult to pupil ratio with class sizes of up to a maximum of four students. This enables us to give our children high levels of support at all times.


All students are given a Baseline Assessment in Literacy and Numeracy on entry to the school and this forms the basis of their programme of study.
