What The Good Schools Guide says..
‘Happy and high achieving,’ thought a parent, with traditional virtues pushed but never, under sparky headship of Dr Barnett, a dull place to be, even though Zoological Society of London has declined request for elephant. Natural home for academically inclined, sportsmen and performers and ideal not just for...

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 1991, Christopher A Barnett BA MA DPhil (60s). Previously second master, Dauntsey’s School and before that head of history at Bradfield. Married to Laura, psychotherapist and author, four grown up children, one daughter, three sons who all came here, all scaling assorted dizzying career heights from bloodstock agent to Twitter supremo.
First post was in higher education as economics lecturer at Brunel in the 70s, combined with political research for MP. Logical, given impressive string of qualifications to his name, Oxford and history-based for the initial bunch, including doctorate; extras from – amongst others – Downing, Cambridge where he’s a fellow commoner (more important than a college lecturer; less than a bye-fellow, apparently) and French government (who wouldn’t want luscious-sounding Chevalier dans L’Ordre des Palmes Académiques?).
