About our school

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions parents have to make. These are just a few key points that we think make our school special place to learn and play:

Learning at St John’s

The whole learning process is aimed at developing children as individuals able to lead successful and satisfying lives both during and after their school days. A mixture of whole class, small group and individual teaching styles is employed which are appropriate to the ages and abilities of the children, and which reflect the nature and content of the curriculum.

Our style of education promotes traditional and established methods, with a firm foundation of the basic skills of literacy and numeracy. We aim to encourage a love of learning thus making every day a rewarding experience for child and teacher.

 

Working together

 

We provide an environment, within the school and the larger community, where clear
expectations are set and children develop self-respect and respect for others, and where staff respond sensitively to the needs of each child.

 

“In their quest for improvement, leaders research carefully and draw on best practice nationally and locally. .”

“The extraordinary extra-curricular programme supports learning really well.”
