At the heart of Barnes educational philosophy is, the development of the mind and an understanding of how an individual student learns best. The intellectual, social, and ethical needs of our students determine our educational curriculum.
Our Curriculum consists of two distinct but complementary strands, both of which seek to promote individual excellence and achievement. Firstly, the examined curriculum is the priority in the Senior School, where we aim for effectiveness in preparing our students for various entrance examinations. Secondly, the non-examined courses and assessments conducted both, in the Senior and Junior School, allows choice and diversity of interest.
Classes are kept small and as a result, each student receives individual attention from the teacher which is essential in ensuring that the required level of progress is made. Central to all things in academics is our distinctive K. M.OVICHEGAN MEMORIAL LIBRARY, in the academic building on the school campus.
This has a smaller and more intimate section for the Junior School. A fully computerized center with Internet facility that contains a wealth of resources. It is staffed throughout the day and easy access is provided for the boarders. Barnes takes pride about its provision of a comprehensive co-curricular activity programme, which, taken with everything else demonstrates our intention and desire to create a new educational community. At the very heart of this, community is the individual student and our mission is to realize his or her potential in whatever-field of learning he or she wishes to pursue.
