As you cannot visit us this year, we are beaming directly into your houses, to showcase East Barnet School in a virtual way! From videos and images to brochures and documents, we have included everything you would normally experience alongside us on a (usually) rainy evening in September.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting and considering East Barnet School for your child.
Click the icon above to see what we are all about! This video was created by a former student and looks at all aspects of EBS life!
I’d like to welcome all our prospective families and students to our Open Evening 2020.
From myself and all the staff and students, we hope you enjoy your time viewing this website. We do miss seeing you in person, but we are so glad to welcome you to view our school and community.
L. Swaine, Headteacher
East Barnet School was delighted to be awarded the Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools ‘School Mental Health Award’ at Silver Level in March 2020. The school was recognised by the Lead Coach as having a warm and nurturing environment where staff and students are well supported. Key areas that were praised included:
The school is leading on a wide variety of mental health partnerships in the area. They are in a CPD hub with three other local secondary schools. EBS has shared it’s good practice and opened it’s doors to others to visit
the school. Leaders of mental health and wellbeing have visited the other schools to advise them on how to improve. The school is continuing to develop key partnerships within and beyond the borough such as the Resilience School Programme and has linked with outside agencies such as iHeart, Papyrus, the Autism Champion Programme and Feminista.
Education in Years 7, 8 and 9 is often referred to as Key Stage 3 or KS3. These are the first subjects students study whilst in secondary school and gives a good basis for choosing GCSE subjects in Year 9.
Students are not able to choose their subjects at Key Stage 3 and must study National Curriculum subjects: Art; Computing; Design and Technology (D&T); Drama; English; Geography; History; Mathematics; Modern Foreign Languages (MFL); Music; Physcial Education (PE); Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education (PSHEE) and Citizenship; Religious Education (RE); Science.
Catchment areas do not really exist anymore, but the closer you live to the school, the greater your chances of gaining a place. Last year, our admissions went out to just under 1 mile, and that has been similar for the last couple of years. It does all depend on how many students of Year 6 age are in the area, but one thing is for sure; if you don’t put us down as one of your preferences, you definitely won’t get a place!
This map is for illustrative purposes only, but gives a rough estimation of a mile from the school and a mile and a half from the school. The EBS badge denotes the location of East Barnet School on the map. Remember that distances are ‘as the crow flies’ from the front gate; it doesn’t take into account the route that students would need to take to the school.
Please look at our Admissions Criteria for exact information and consult the London Borough of Barnet booklet ‘A Guide to Secondary Education in Barnet 2021‘ for information regarding allocation of places.
We were so thrilled to announce that on Saturday 26th October 2019, Mr Sadler was awarded the Pearson’s National Teaching Awards Digital Innovator of the Year! This was such a fantastic achievement, and we are so proud of Mr Sadler and the showcase of East Barnet School that was shown on the BBC.
On behalf of the EBS Parent Teachers and Friends Association we add our warm welcome to this exciting moment when choosing a new school.
Many of you will have been involved with PTA activities at your last school or now have some spare time to help raise vital funds for the school. We kindly request you take a look at the PTFA section on the school website or look out for details of events on Twitter on ways to support, as well as to donate. We very much look forward to welcoming you soon, to help us support the East Barnet School Community.
Parents and Carers this is your opportunity to help support the school…Please get involved!
All of the applications for the secondary school transfer are made via the London Borough of Barnet; this is the same process used by all Year 6 students in the borough. You will be able to put down your preference of schools and the borough will offer places based on your choices. For more information on the process you can visit our main EBS website, or the London Borough of Barnet website.
