"At Barton Peveril, there is the perfect balance of academia and social support. I am able to enhance my intellectual curiosity through the liberty and individualism granted to us, whilst benefiting from the superb quality of teaching from each individual teacher. Each subject comes with a different teaching style so it's as if teachers themselves can flourish and excel in their vocation."
