Barnhill is a 'Good' School that also provides evidence to suggest it could be 'Outstanding'.

Barnhill Ofsted Report November 2022

You can download the reports on the Ofsted website

As Ofsted inspections occur every four years or so, the school is also reviewed by Challenge Partners each year.  This involves a skilled team of reviewers, lead by an Ofsted qualified inspector, reviewing the school.  I am very pleased to announce that the review team has judged Barnhill to be top in each category since 2019.
