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. We pride ourselves on the fact that every child is individually cared for and recognised for their individual qualities and for the different contributions they make to our successful school.
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.

Black History Month is a yearly commemoration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks throughout history. This month students will have the chance to learn about some less well known black individuals in British history and engage in podcasts to learn about key events in more detail. There are also competitions set up for KS3 that allows them to share their learning on African culture and to create a poster on the importance of Black History Month.
On Friday 25 September students in the MFL department celebrated European Day of Languages.
