This Week

School Christmas Dinner on Wednesday 7th Dec with special surprise!


Welcome to St Bartholomew’s

We are a two form entry church school set in the heart of Sydenham, South East London, where we serve a diverse community.

We are passionate about learning and enjoy challenging our children to think creatively in lots of different ways.  Our children are supported by a fantastic staff team who are dedicated to educating the whole child. Based firmly on Christian values the school prepares children for lifelong learning and for the ever changing society we live in.

The school’s core purpose is

“Believe, Achieve, Succeed”

and this underpins everything we do.  Come and see us in action, visitors are always welcome.
