In-Residence Programme

The East Barnet School In-Residence Programme is a unique opportunity for students to work with professionals in a field that may be of interest to them. The best part of the programme is that students do not have to leave school to take part; the in-residence programme is run at school.

Students are able to attend different clubs at lunchtime and after school to work closely with our professionals. They produce their own work and are mentored and steered in the right direction, whilst allowing students to be creative in ways that extend beyond the classroom.
