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.
This week the Photography enrichment class were looking at ‘exposure compensation’. The background is this: the automatic camera settings give a picture that will have an overall ‘medium’ brightness, but sometimes this creates a poor image so the photographers need to make a decision to have the image brighter or darker than the camera selects! Here are some of them.
“We are your head students for this year. Unfortunately we haven’t been able to introduce ourselves properly to everyone like we normally would but we are keen to meet as many of you as we can this term. This half term we’ve been working on some plans to make the school better for everyone in coming years, having taken all of your suggestions, and we can’t wait for you to see them!”

The Sixth Form Open Evening was very different this year for Staff and Students alike. We were disappointed not to be able to open the doors and welcome all our prospective Year 12 students in the usual way. However the Sixth Form team were determined to make our Virtual Open Evening an exciting and informative experience, which gave students a chance to learn about life at Sixth Form and showcase our extensive portfolio of 39 Level 3 subjects.
Lawrence (9D3), played The Last Post and Reveille twice last Sunday; once at the service in Speen and then afterwards at a service at Boxford war memorial. He has played for these services for the last 3 years and before that played Last Post and Reveille at Stockcross CE Primary School remembrance services.
Year 13 student, Annabelle, ran and swam 72 miles during September as part of The British Red Cross “Miles for Refugees” campaign. Her challenge represented the journey taken by refugees fleeing Damascus to Beirut and she raised almost £600!
