Executive Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to New Barn School

New Barn School is an exciting new development in special needs education. The school offers state of the art facilities in a purpose built environment and is set in the beautiful West Sussex countryside.  

The staff team at New Barn School are committed to creating a learning
culture that enables the best possible outcomes for its pupils.  The aim of our curriculum is to engage and challenge pupils both academically and socially so they can make accelerated progress.  At New Barn School, we place a strong emphasis on personal development.  We set high expectations of our pupils and believe that by developing self-confidence, self-esteem and independence, pupils will also have high expectations of themselves.

We work hard at building effective relationships with parents and carers and believe this is vital for enabling our pupils to reach their full potential.

The outcomes we strive to achieve for our pupils is for them to develop high levels of independence and to be able to participate and contribute to society as they make their journey into adulthood.
