Curriculum Subjects


Since our founding, in 1873, Lady Barn House has built an outstanding reputation for inspiring teaching, delivered by enthusiastic subject specialists, in bright and spacious teaching areas.

Today, Lady Barn is a very popular school. There are many good reasons for this, some of them more tangible than others.

We are committed to taking the greatest care of each and every child. We employ the very best staff, we maintain the highest quality learning environments and we provide a plentiful supply of modern teaching resources.

At Lady Barn we have a passion for finding new ways of inspiring and challenging our pupils. We look back on our past with great pride and we follow the example set by our founder, W.H.Herford, that the starting point for all good education is kindness and care.

Our curriculum is an eclectic mixture of traditional topics, themes and ideas mixed with teaching methodologies that empower our pupils to understand and progress.

We teach in such a way that it sets minds free to discover new concepts and appreciate new ideas. We encourage our pupils to be creative and we equip them with the confidence to explore, experiment and develop skills and talents.

It is our aim to enable each child to reach their potential in as many areas as possible. Our curriculum is driven by our desire to develop the whole child – the academic, the artistic, the sporting and the spiritual.

Our success and excellent reputation for passing 11+ entrance exams is a consequence of a superb all round education. An education that will prepare each child for their next challenge in their life after Lady Barn. The vast majority of children that leave Lady Barn are presented with the enviable task of making a choice of where they would like to continue their education. In most cases our children receive three or four offers at 11+. We support and guide our pupils and parents throughout this process.
