One family in Christ


Welcome to St. John the Baptist RC Primary School website

We provide a warm, welcoming and challenging environment in which children can develop their skills and enjoy their learning. We ensure that learning activities are matched to the needs of individual pupils, and we have a great deal of adult support in each class in order to ensure that pupils make excellent progress.

Our mission statement says that we are one family, working together and aiming high. We go to Mass at St John the Baptist Church with Father Michael, we have assemblies and prayer sessions each day in class, and our GIFT team help to set a good example of following Christ's message.

If you wish to visit the school prior to your child starting at St John's, please contact the school office to arrange a suitable time - you will receive a very warm welcome!
