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 2017.
The event was held at the Mansion House, where students were seated at tables with investment fund managers responsible for funds worth billions of pounds. They were able to ask questions about the industry, entry routes, typical daily work and even how much salary can be earned. There was also a panel discussion when experts were asked about their concerns for the future in terms of risk to financial growth and their predictions for the future with regards to likely emerging economies.

Our first home fixture was against Downe House who were also keen to have the opportunity to play a proper match following several weeks of training. Although we experienced defeat, the more sets that were played, the better the St Bart’s team performed, eventually winning a set against a talented and very tall Downe House team.
Last week St Bart’s celebrated Pride! All students had the opportunity to write down what Pride meant to them, and these messages were used to create a large rainbow flag, which was displayed in the hub.
On Friday activity time lots of students got creative and added colourful chalk drawings and messages in celebration of Pride to our ‘Pride Pavement’. All of these contributions showed just how much each and every student in our school has to be proud of.
