What the Good Schools Guide says...
History continues to be a firm favourite - according to one insider ‘because the gory bits aren’t left out’. Good IT provision and a fully computerised weather station. No academic elitism or stigmatisation here - school has a holistic approach and is very proud of those who, with the know-how of the friendly and highly-regarded support department (The Bridge), have ‘been turned round’...

Special Education Needs
Barnardiston Hall provides a first-class education to children with special needs ranging from dyslexia and dyspraxia to autism and Asperger’s syndrome with in-class support, small group work or one-to-one tuition in 'The Bridge'. The School is CReSTeD registered. Children with mild EBD are given strategies to help them cope with school life and we have received excellent reports from visiting outside agencies. Broadlands Hall is a 10-bedded residential children's home which is located some 2 miles from Barnardiston Hall. Broadlands offers education to children with a full range of learning difficulties and/or EBD. Most children are residential and are referred via local authorities. However, day children can be accepted and private placements can be made. Broadlands Hall offers a supportive, safe and caring environment in which children are encouraged to reach their full potential.
