Pupil Experience

At St John's, we have a long and successful history of providing an enriching education, underpinned by high expectations that enable every pupil to thrive and achieve their potential.

Our team of dedicated and passionate staff contribute to the success of our high-achieving, respectful and ambitious pupils, as they challenge and support each of our learners to achieve their best possible outcomes.

As part of our ongoing commitment to developing the ‘whole child’, our offer extends beyond academic excellence. Our dynamic approach to the pupil experience encompasses a range of activities outside the classroom, creative teaching methods and a wide range of support tools to provide children with an in-depth education and a diverse enrichment programme, designed to enhance their learning experience.  

Extra-curricular clubs

We aim to inspire and cultivate our pupils’ passions, to enable the development of life-long skills and draw out every child’s potential.

All clubs have limited numbers of spaces. We are actively trying to increase the number of before and after school activities and opportunities for children. We would welcome hearing from any parents with specific talents or interests who would like to volunteer to help achieve this.

Please email the school office if you can help.

If you wish your child to attend a club and they are in receipt of free school meals, or you are experiencing financial difficulties and are worried about the cost involved, we can help. Please contact our home school support worker, Mrs Shaw, who will look at what we can do to assist with you as a school.
