Barlborough Hall School and Nursery is a deliberately small prep school with classes of typically up to 22 children. Small classes mean teachers get to know their pupils well. They understand where a child needs challenging, when they need support and, critically, have the time to give it. Being a small prep school and nursery brings other benefits too. We are a close-knit, caring community with a strong sense of family. 

Really knowing a child and being in a position to give this level of attention impacts positively on every aspect of their growth, from achievement in the classroom to the development of self-belief. The level of pastoral care is exceptional and all else builds on this foundation.

At Barlborough Hall School, we believe in learning through play. Our Nursery children develop their capacity for learning through art, games and activities, as well as exploring our woodlands and grounds.

The vision to ‘Strive for the Magis’ (excellence) in all we do is effectively managed so that the impact for all pupils, regardless of background to have the chance to grow spiritually, morally and personally.

You want the best for your child, and so do we. From specialist teaching and facilities, to the nurturing and friendly atmosphere - children thrive at Barlborough Hall School.

 

Each class has its own teacher who delivers the majority of the curriculum, including Mathematics, English, Humanities and Science. Our teachers get to know your child as an individual, and will work closely with both you and them, to encourage progress, build on their strengths and development in other areas. This goes much further than the classroom for us.

We have an exceptional sporting reputation, and regularly emerge victorious at sporting fixtures.

Our musical repertoire is no different, with most of our children playing at least one instrument, whilst also participating in our choir or instrumental ensembles.

Super Learning Days

From the marvels of the animal kingdom to unravelling the enigmas of ancient Greece, Super Learning Days are a favourite amongst all our pupils at Barlborough Hall School.

 

In each term block, every year group has one full day off timetable, which is dedicated to a topic featured in the curriculum and brings it to life through immersive Super Learning Days.

These are tailored each year group and will cover a range of subjects from War-Time England to what your child’s future career might be.

Bringing Learning to Life

 

Children are encouraged to come to school dressed to match the topic of the day, and they spend their usual lesson times doing activities centred around the subject.

The activities often bring in other aspects of learning. Building Greek temples make for engaging STEM sessions, learning to cook healthy meals in our food technology room showcases what a career as a chef might look like for Future Me Day, and group dance lessons can give pupils an idea as to what a ball in Tudor times might have been like. 

Specialists in the Field

 

Super Learning Days often feature talks from external specialists who work within the Feld of topic. A Stone Age expert will give an immersive talk about things we would have eaten in that time, and how archaeologists discovered these facts. The local fire brigade visit to talk about working in the emergency services as a future career. We have even had a pop up astrological centre in the school Theatre for Space Day!

Whatever the subject, the children always go home having thoroughly enjoyed the day. The opportunity to learn in so many different ways and to apply hands-on techniques to a subject is a truly unique experience, and one we are very proud of at Barlborough Hall School.

We believe that sport is an excellent way of encouraging camaraderie and growing confidence from an early age, which is why our sporting programme starts at the first years of education with us.

 

Our grounds enable us to run Rugby, Football and Cricket sessions either as part of the curriculum, or during our after school enrichment, and our sports courts are a perfect location for Netball and Tennis.

 

We also have a dance studio, and heated indoor swimming pool, which is used daily.

 

We work closely with our senior school, Mount St Mary's College for sporting events, and have regular trips to the equally excellent sporting facilities there for larger tournaments and training camps.

Support

Support

We believe in 'Cura Personalis'; caring for the whole person, and this is a core value of a Jesuit School. In today's world, inclusion and wellbeing have never been more important, and we take our approach to caring for children and their individual needs very seriously.

We have a specialist SENCO leader, and wellbeing officers in all areas of the school. Our pupils know they can approach us with any concern, big or small. We do not judge or differentiate between any of the children in our care.

You can speak to a member of our admissions team about any questions you may have regarding additional support for your child. We are there to guide and advise you based on your individual needs.
