The “Barnite” is an independent thinker. Going to Barnes is many ways a privilege, providing what is called “an excellent start in life”.
From The Principal’s Desk
Barnes is more than just a school or an educational institution. It is poetry, something invisible but very tangible. It vibrates with the energy fields left by its Founding Fathers since 1925. Their vibration is still alive. Their impact is in the very air.
At Barnes, our vision of education is that life should not be taken as a struggle for survival but as a celebration. Life should not only be a competition but joy too. Singing, dancing, poetry, music, painting and all that is available in the world – education should prepare you to fall in tune with it.
The right education will prepare you to be your unique self. “Know thyself” is the most precious education that we wish to impart.
Here, at Barnes, our respect for each individual is absolute. Our pattern of teaching is simple – “The individual does not need to fit the pattern, the pattern has to fit the individual.”
Come and be a part of this extraordinary journey with us!

Boarding life is the very heart of Barnes with facilities such as Pastoral Care and the House System. One of Barnes’s basic values is Family. Each boarding house is like a large family, a community in its own right, reflecting Barnes’s basic value.
The boarding accommodation aims at achieving an effective balance between privacy for the student and the development of a strong sense of communal responsibility. The students are housed class-wise in dormitories. Each dormitory has its own recreation and TV area.
Each boarding house is carefully supervised by an experienced Block Master/Mistress. They ensure that new students settle in easily.
The matron is one of the most important members of the Boarding House Community. She heads the house- keeping team, monitors the health of the students with the help of fully qualified nurses residing on the campus and provides support to the students throughout their journey in school.
