Headteacher's Welcome

Headteacher's Welcome


A very warm welcome to St Bartholomew’s Catholic School, Swanley. We are a voluntary

aided school in the Sevenoaks District of Kent.


St Bartholomew’s is a Catholic school where Christian values are paramount and children and staff are encouraged to ‘serve the Lord with joy’ in everything we do.

Each child at St Bartholomew’s is taught that they hold individual dignity and their distinct characters, gifts and talents are cherished and nurtured by the school. The diversity in our school community is valued and celebrated. We teach our children to be respectful, responsible members of our local community and of the wider society and to develop positive, cooperative relationships with each other. We pride ourselves in the broad, aspirational curriculum we offer the children at St Bartholomew’s, where we focus on exceptional creative learning and challenge within a positive, industrious atmosphere. We value the development of our children’s musical, linguistic, sporting and artistic abilities. Children are encouraged to be proactive and enthusiastic learners and to always strive to do the best they possibly can.


We believe that parents and carers are the children’s first educators and that the strong partnership between home and school is vital to their success and happiness.

Thank you for visiting our website. If you have any questions please contact the school.
