Welcome

BCGS - EHT & HTWelcome from the Executive Headteacher and Headteacher

A very warm welcome to the Barton Court Grammar School website.  I am sure that you will find it informative and enjoyable to explore. We hope that this website will give you an insight into the high quality of education you can expect your son/daughter to receive at Barton Court Grammar School.

We are very proud to be one of the few co-educational selective schools in the country delivering high academic standards within a very caring and supportive school community. Our focus is on achieving excellence in all that we do to support outstanding outcomes for all our students. This is evident in the way our community of students, parents, staff and governors all work together to provide an engaging learning environment so that each student thrives and achieves their full potential.

We all learn best when we are happy and valued; supported and encouraged, so at Barton Court Grammar School we take care to ensure our students’ education is both enriching and enjoyable.

Academic excellence is at the heart of our school, but we equally nurture 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 your child brings with them to help them to achieve personal success.

When you visit us, I hope you will appreciate not only the courtesy and confidence of the students, but also their joy and enthusiasm.

We look forward to meeting you.

Ms K Cardus  BSc, MA ED, NPQH
CEO/Executive Headteacher
Mr J Hopkins  BSc (Hons), NPQH
