Our School

Barnhill Community High School is a high-performing over-subscribed secondary school and sixth form serving the community of Hillingdon.  Our ethos is based upon the values of respect, wisdom, aspiration and community.  Students are challenged and supported to be their best by expert and committed teachers.

These values are captured by our school ethos:

Together, achieving our best.


Academic Excellence

Excellent teaching and support ensure that students make outstanding progress in their examinations.  The school is well within the top 10% of schools in the country for GCSE and the top 25% for A Level.  Our mathematics and science departments are accredited as national areas of excellence by the Challenge Partners Network.  Mathematics GCSE has been within the top 100 schools in the country for the past two years.  English, the humanities and languages are also very high performing.

We are delighted this year to join the ‘Stand Out Schools’ excellence programme - a partnership of the highest performing schools in England.  The partnership aims share the best practice in the best schools, to advance the quality of education for all.
