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.
As part of our commitment to reviewing and improving our communications with parents, we have invested in the SIMS Parent App. The App enables parents to check and, crucially, to edit the various contact details that we hold on our database. Using the App will ensure that our records for addresses, medical conditions, email accounts and phone numbers are 100% up to date which is very important from a safeguarding perspective.

They had 4 weeks to cover the distance which meant squeezing in short runs after school and longer 10k runs at the weekends.
Ella has raised over £350.00 which will go to the charity, Saving Romanian Strays, which saved her dogs life.
The bookmark contest, adjudicated by the Library team, has a 1st, 2nd and 3rd; the other competitions, judged after much head-scratching and agonising by Mr Clayton, have just a single prize for each winner, but everyone who entered the Masked Reader competition or whose work for World Book Day was shortlisted by their teachers will receive a Kudos point.
