Bartholomew School was founded in the 18th century by John Bartholomew when a subscription of £87 was given to him to finance the "Bartholomew room".[3][4] The school remained there until 1847 where it was moved to its present site on Witney Road. In 1958 the school was expanded, and by 1968 it became a comprehensive secondary school for 11- to 18-year-olds.[5] In 2003, the school became a Technology College where Design and Technology is made compulsory for GCSE. At the start of the 2007/08 school year, the recently refurbished sports hall was opened for use in partnership with Windrush Leisure Limited.[6] The school became an academy in August 2012.[7]
