Welcome to Barleythorpe

Barleythorpe is a wonderful setting in the heart of the Rutland countryside, enjoying picturesque views and a grand historic entrance which adjoins the Barleythorpe Hall.

Designed around the theme of a Rutland Village every room has its own identity linked to a particular place in our beautiful county complete with displays from the past and present. This is a building to enjoy in its own right as well as for the service it provides. It is the antithesis of the stark, empty architecture of so many schools and colleges and breathes life, warmth and creativity into the community that use it. Students enjoy a conference standard experience in the classroom with everything from padded seats to wireless technology – in short, this is no ordinary sixth form college.

A Mini-University

When people visit us they often comment on how we feel
like a mini-university. Perhaps this is because we only take
students between the ages of 16-18, creating a very different

atmosphere from school.
