Information about the school

Barton Court is very proud to be one of the few co-educational selective schools in the country uniquely delivering high academic standards within a very caring and supportive school community.

Students develop into independent, confident, open-minded, life-long learners ready to take their place as leaders in the 21st Century. They will develop into well-balanced, articulate, principled and responsible global citizens, with cultural and international awareness, who positively contribute to our school and the wider community.

Academic excellence is at the heart of our school, but we nurture equally creativity, personal and physical development, independence and inquiring minds. All students are individuals, and there can be no single pathway that all must be compelled to tread. Consequently, we endeavour to build a personal curriculum that will draw upon the raw talent and energy that students bring with them to help them achieve personal success.

We are truly a 21st Century school, concerned not just with what our students learn, but with how they learn, and how they grow in confidence, independence and critical thinking. Our unique curriculum has accelerated opportunities at KS3 and KS4, IB Diploma and A Levels. Our Language Specialist Status supports our mission statement to encourage and develop students to be responsible global citizens with cultural and international awareness.

We are Ofsted outstanding rated school.
