  • Welcome to our School!


    Welcome to St. John the Baptist School’s website. We have designed it to provide as much information as possible about our school and I hope that you will find it helpful. However if there is any further information that you need,  please contact us, we will be happy to help. We are proud of our school and every child and adult involved with St. John’s is important. This was recognised by OFSTED inspectors who also praised the school for having high standards.
