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.

  • The newly implemented recycling system is great for our sustainability at St Bart’s, yet we must also question the source of all our waste as well as its disposal.

    We can now effectively recycle items that are recyclable, but what about the crisp packets, the straws and the chocolate bar wrappers? The amount of general waste we are producing is declining, but the volume could halve if students’ lunchboxes did not contain so much unrecyclable packaging. read more

  • At around 8am almost 100 tired Year 10 and 11 students arrived at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York.

    A short bus ride took us to our modest accommodation, the Vanderbilt YMCA in Midtown Manhattan. After we had checked in
    we went on a walk, in search of some of the iconic sights of Manhattan: Times Square, The Chrysler Building and Grand Central Terminal. We were guided by friendly locals, who were able to tell us a lot about of the history of the area.

  • Our Sixth Form Open Evening was held on Thursday 1 November. We really enjoyed chatting with so many of our own Y11 and meeting so many students from other schools who have been attracted by our academic record and our established reputation.

     If you were unable to make our Open Evening, or you feel you would like another opportunity to view the school, please do join us on Wednesday 21 November for a talk with the Head of Sixth Form, Mr Robbins, and a tour with our School Officers. Coffee will be served on arrival, from 8:30am, for a 9:00am start. We expect the tour to finish by 10:15am.

    If you would like to book a place on the tour, please email sixthform@stbarts.co.uk or call 01635 576368.

  • We have new bins in the Hub, canteen, kitchen and Sixth Form area to make sure that food and compostable packaging is recycled separately from other waste. This is taken to be made into compost and top soil. We have also refocused our attention on recycling plastic bottles, aluminium cans and paper/cardboard. The ultimate aim is to reduce the amount of waste we send as ‘General Waste’ to the incinerator.  The first week of our new recycling initiative has been a success and we have reduced the amount of general waste by 15%. We think we can reduce this further to at least 30% in the coming weeks. read more

  • Our students from Year 7 to 13 are currently working hard, and having a great time, rehearsing for our school production of Grease: The Schools Edition!!
