There are many ways to support Barnard Castle School.


Whether for School or OB network - volunteering is a rewarding and fun way to get involved or remain in touch with the life of the School. Perhaps you could spare time to host an event for us or perhaps put yourself forward as a guest speaker? Contact Us >>


Old Barnardians' Club

The OB Club Committee is always keen to hear from OBs who can lend a hand and get involved. Read more about the Club >>

Useful contacts

Do you have an enviable personal or profession network? Could you help our aspiring Sixth Form pupils or alumni connect with someone new? Help us identify potential opportunities to further develop ‘Barnardians Reconnected’, develop business links or help secure interesting venues or guest speakers. Contact Us >>

Taking part

There’s always something going on in our busy calendar.

Are you a parent? Join the Barney Friends – Prep or Senior – to meet other like-minded parents. Perhaps join us at coffee mornings, cheer on our sports teams pitchside, compete at one of our quiz nights or perhaps enjoy one of our seasonal Balls. Check our calendar for the latest schedule.

Organisational skills

Share your passion for getting things done, motivating others or leading by example. Opportunities to get involved are varied by project and by level of commitment. 


Each and every penny of your donation is put to good use whether you have given to our area of greatest need or have specified a specific purpose for your gift. With a variety of ways to give, we are passionate about sharing the impact of your generosity. More >>

Share your knowledge

Could you help identify internship opportunities in your organisation for our Sixth Form pupils or perhaps offer your time as a sector-specific speaker for our careers programme? Contact Us >>

Gifts in kind

There are valuable and imaginative ways to support the School without donating money. Individuals may wish to donate school-related items to our archive, while companies may wish to support us by donating expertise, goods or services in support of a particular event or occasion.

Other ways to help

Alumni play a vital part in the life and work of both the School and the Old Barnardian community. Help build a dynamic network. Become involved with the Old Barnardians' Club or simply save the date for a future event of interest. Update your online profile today >>
