St Bart's is at the heart of the Newbury Community and has a long history, having preserved many of its traditions. The school has an established reputation for academic excellence and we are very proud of the results our students achieve year after year.
At St Bart’s we have high expectations of students, staff, parents and Governors alike and we promote individual excellence within a caring community.

The outstanding facilities across the curriculum and real attention to the needs of all students enable them to grow and flourish and reach their full potential to build for a promising future on solid educational foundations.
St Bart’s is a forward thinking comprehensive school. Time after time, our results and achievements place us as one of the top secondary schools in the country. A large vibrant Sixth Form offers a wide range of subjects and attracts students from around the area.
