Set in its own fifty acre estate of outstanding natural beauty, this school provides a high quality and safe boarding and day education to boys and girls who are encouraged to reach their maximum potential in a happy and purposeful environment.

Barnard Castle School has recently invested £500,000 in new boarding facilities to make them some of the best in the northeast. Pupils have attended Barnard Castle School from Chile, India, Japan and Hong Kong.
