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.
The school celebrated outstanding GCSE and A Level results for 2018.
St Bartholomew’s School Alumni was set up in 2017 to build a community of former students so that the school can keep in touch with them. We aim to encourage alumni to help inspire current students by sharing their further education and career experiences since leaving school.
St Bart’s encourage school leavers to sign up to the Alumni when they leave. So far we have organised a number of careers events/assemblies to which Alumni have contributed. We have also circulated a termly newsletter to the alumni, the second of which is due to be sent imminently.
A huge well done to the Year 9 rugby team who have finished off an excellent first term of rugby.
The A team were undefeated in the local area tournament finishing top of their group with four wins from four games. With great team spirit, captain leading from the front, and many exceptional performances, the team were able to secure the title without conceding a try.
Year 10 and 12 Product Design students traded their usual contemporary setting of St Bartholomew’s for the futuristic environment of the Mini factory in Cowley. We don’t mean that the factory is petite; we mean it is where designs are finally realised in the production of the various models of Mini; a classic British institution. (Although now owned by a German company!)
