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.
Well done to all competitors who picked up valuable points for their Houses and competed across the two days of Sports Day this year. A whopping 11 records were broken, including by two Year 8 boys who picked up 3 records each!
On Friday 28 June the Sixth Form bunting was out ‘en masse’ as we held our 2019 Induction Day and welcomed students from 28 schools who will be joining us next year. The incoming Year 12 students had the opportunity to experience Sixth Form life and spent the day enjoying time with their Tutor Groups and Houses
On Tuesday 25 June, over 180 of our Year 11 students enjoyed their school prom at Donnington Grove Hotel along with a number of members of St Bart’s staff. The evening was full of fun, laughter and lots of dancing. Students were treated to a photobooth, buffet, DJ, sweet stand and a stunning venue, decorated by our Year 11 Prom Committee.
We are delighted to announce that eight of our current Year 13 students have received offers to study medicine or veterinary science at University. This follows months of hard work and study to complete entry tests and interviews at their chosen Universities.
The offers to study medicine are at Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham, Southampton, Sheffield, Kings College, London and UEA. One student has chosen to study Veterinary Medicine at Nottingham after she was offered a remarkable four places.
Congratulations to the Year 7 students who performed superbly in the recent Area Athletics competition. The girls’ & boys’ teams came 1st! Several students were selected to compete at the County Championships on Tuesday 2 July. Congratulations and good luck to all those selected and well done to everyone involved.
