About Barnsley Christian School

History & Aims

Barnsley Christian School was founded in 1985 as a joint venture between two churches in the Barnsley area with the initial aim of providing a good quality of education for their own children. The school was established as an independent (fee paying) school and an integral part of the ministry of Hope House Church.

Since 1989 the school has accepted pupils from families who are of nominal or no Christian belief.

We aim to provide education for children according to Christian ethics, morality and belief.

Our commitment to you is:

  1. To take pastoral responsibility for all children in a loving, caring and well disciplined environment.
  2. To provide a broad and balanced Christ-centred curriculum for all children regardless of ability, age, race or gender.
  3. To encourage all pupils to explore the Christian faith for themselves.
  4. To encourage all pupils to fulfil their potential academically.
