Year Six pupils at Lady Barn House School have yet again achieved brilliant results, in the external entrance exams for the Independent Senior Schools. The school has a superb record of excellence and, over the years, this cohort has achieved tremendous success.

88 per cent of pupils who took the Manchester Grammar School achieved a place, together with 100% at Manchester High School, 95% at Cheadle Hulme School, 92% at Stockport Grammar and 70% at Withington.

Headmistress Mrs Sheila Marsh said: “Pupils at the school are fortunate to be able to apply to attend a large range of superb Senior Schools in the area. Children at Lady Barn House School benefit from the outstanding teaching that is provided and from following a curriculum, which is both broad and balanced. The dynamic combination of a thrilling curriculum and extensive provision of extracurricular activities, allows children at the school to develop great confidence and independence in learning.

Mrs Marsh added: “Members of staff at the school focus on personalised learning, set extremely high expectations and develop both warm and positive relationships with the pupils. We consider that the experience of an education at Lady Barn House School therefore allows parents to make an informed and confident choice of Senior School for their child. “

Mrs Marsh concluded: “The splendid exam results that are achieved by pupils at Lady Barn House School reflect the care provided by the staff, throughout the school. Teachers and teaching assistants, in each department, are hugely committed to providing each child with an excellent education. Each member of staff is very proud of contributing to the success of each child. Lady Barn focuses on the wider aspects of education and wishes to enable pupils to become confident, happy and independent learners. In treating each child as an individual, we believe that each pupil is special and is supported fully in achieving his, or her, potential.”
