St John’s School is a unique learning environment, offering small class sizes, where every pupil is nurtured and inspired to develop both academically and as an individual.
Prospective parents, pupils and their families are usually warmly invited and encouraged to attend one or more of our various Open Days or Open Mornings or on a personal tour during a normal school day. Our Open Days this year have sadly been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
