About Our School


St Bartholomew's is a Church of England (Voluntary Aided) school for children aged 4 to 11 years. There are seven classes, one for every year group from Reception to Year 6. Approximately 185 children are on roll. The school was founded during Victorian times on a site in Providence Place, and the modern building was opened in 1974.

There are seven classrooms, two group rooms, a 'nurture room', a large multi-purpose hall, a library, a community room, a medical room, a kitchen and a kiln room. We have also recently completed work on our new ICT Suite, which is used by all classes in the school.  The Junior classes all have Interactive Whiteboards, and Data Projectors are used in the Infant classes. 

There are three playgrounds of varying sizes. The central playground has a large climbing frame with safety surface underneath. There is a decking area and a nature garden, which was refurbished last year and continues to be worked on by the children and staff. In addition, children throughout the school recently worked with a local artist to produce a mural in one of the playgrounds.  The school has also recently set up a 'Playground Working Party' which is currently masterminding redevelopment of our main playground areas - watch this space!

The school is generously staffed for the number of pupils. Each class has its own teacher and in all Infant and Junior classes a teaching assistant works to support the teacher. Teaching assistants provide additional support for pupils with special educational needs.

A full copy of our School Prospectus is available here.  To arrange a visit or to find out more, please contact us on 01273 692463.

Children with Gifts and Talents

The school makes special provision for children who are either high-achieving all rounders, or who have specific skills and talents.  We have a Gifted & Talented Co-ordinator who organises a programme of enrichment and extension activities for these children; it is hoped that most children will have the opportunity to participate at some point during their time at St Bartholomew's.  Recent activities have included theatre visits, music and sports workshops, a science and technology project, animation workshops, and working with a performance poet. 

All teachers also build enrichment and extension opportunities into the curriculum for each class.
