At Barton Hill, we believe that all of our children have special, individual talents and that we can help them achieve their full potential in this inclusive, safe, learning-focused school community. We value the contribution of all members of our community and work closely with other groups and agencies in the area.
We offer an exciting curriculum with many opportunities for enrichment and celebration. All our learning is embedded with Core Learning Skills to develop the children’s own understanding of themselves and enable them to access further learning when they leave us to become the citizens and leaders of the future.
We are very proud of our children and their families and all that we can offer them here at Barton Hill Academy.”
