Year six pupils travelled to the University of Cambridge to experience a taste of university life.

Pupils watched mesmerising Harry Potter themed experiments, carried out by two master potion experts, and got to conduct their own experiments as well.

Headteacher Amy Arnold said one pupil told her: “I just want to skip secondary school now and go straight to university.”

She said: “Our curriculum is rooted in giving children, real-life irresistible learning experiences.

“We believe passionately in equality of opportunity and strive to ensure that each and every child at Barnham develops the skills, knowledge and understanding to flourish and thrive in the wider world.”
