School Admissions

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will ever make and you will naturally wish to find out as much information as possible prior to making your final decision regarding your child’s primary education.   At St John’s, we welcome all opportunities to showcase our school, children and learning culture.

Our school tours are led by a member of the Senior Leadership Team and take place at regular intervals during the autumn and early part of the spring term.
