Our heritage

Our heritage stems from its relationship with the Teesdale community and each and every one of the pupils who have passed through Central Hall.

Our place in the Barnard Castle community is supported through longstanding association over the last 130 years with charitable institutions, the University of Durham and assorted entrepreneurial and industry partners across the North East. Our Christian foundation continues to be celebrated though daily worship in our beautiful chapel.


Our alumni

 Our alumni include many distinguished authors, artists, engineers, entrepreneurs, sportsmen and scientists, whose work has helped improve the lives of many.

We take pride in our association with distinguished alumni such as VC recipient George Nicholson Bradford, mountain explorer Benthley Beetham and vitamin D scientist Sir Edward Mellanby. We also celebrate more recent achievers including former modern pentathlete Kim Hamilton, Scotland rugby international Tim Visser and Savile Row designer Patrick Grant.

Our pupils

Current pupils are also high achieving, with significant numbers representing their School, county, region or country in a variety of academic and sporting pursuits.

Give the gift of education

A Barney education inspires minds, opens doors and builds an inner confidence.

Your support could ensure that the brightest and the best pupils can benefit from Barney’s first class environment and all can achieve to the best of their potential.
