Welcome to St Mary’s and St John’s Church of England school. I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead this thriving all through school which provides an excellent education from Nursery through to Sixth Form.
Our distinct Christian vision is inspired by a firm belief that “….. with God all things are possible”. This foundational bible passage encourages every member of our diverse and close-knit community to aim for the best and excel in all aspects of life. A commitment to the guiding principles of Wisdom, Service and Hope inspires us all to aim for academic excellence with an emphasis on wellbeing and a love of learning.
We do all we can to motivate our pupils to be ambitious about what they can accomplish in life. Our distinctive ethos encourages them to reach their full potential and develop their individual talents so they are equipped to contribute positively to the wider community.
Being an all-through school creates many opportunities for our students, parents, and staff. Our schools share an educational philosophy which fosters high expectations and consistent pastoral care. Our primary children have access to the specialist teachers, resources, and facilities in our secondary phase, and in turn, our secondary pupils benefit from the opportunities to develop mentoring and leadership skills through supporting our younger children. The collaboration between primary and secondary staff creates a curriculum continuum which benefits all students as they progress through the school.
Our website provides information about our school, activities, and ethos. You are warmly invited to visit any of our three sites to see our pupils and teachers in action. When you experience St Mary’s and St John’s I am confident that you will want to join our family of schools.
