Welcome to Barndale House School

 Welcome from our Headteacher 

  "What I learn today, prepares me for tomorrow"

On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors I would like to welcome you to Barndale House School. I hope that this website gives you a glimpse into the life of our school and begins to help you understand ‘The Barndale Way’ of doing things. We are very proud of what our wonderful school can offer your child and family and our website is a good place to find out exactly what you can expect from us.   

I feel very privileged to be introducing myself as the Headteacher of Barndale House School. I have worked in special education for over ten years and to be the Headteacher of such a fantastic, friendly and welcoming school is a job I feel very fortunate to have. The positive, warm atmosphere and commitment from staff to providing the best possible education, opportunities and outcomes for all of our amazing pupils is something that excites me very much. It makes Barndale House School a very special place to work.  

I hope that you find this website useful, but if there is anything else you need to know then please contact us. We love our school and we hope that you will too!  

I look forward to meeting and working with you.
