Overview

Our School In November 2013 St John’s became a Church sponsored academy with The Good Shepherd Trust, part of  the Diocese of Guildford. We provide education from Nursery (age 3) through to the end of Key Stage 2 (age 11).  There is one class for each age group from Nursery through to Year 6, a total of eight classes. To find out what makes St John’s really special you need to come and meet us. Please contact the school office to make an appointment to visit.

About Us

Our Facilities Our school has had a major refurbishment over the last two years. 

The school is bright and spacious with fantastic facilities for all ages!  This year we have remodelled our Early Years Unit, with designated Nursery and Reception classrooms and outdoor learning areas. This enables the children to benefit from the early years continuous provision programme to a high standard.

The school now hosts a Nurture group facility for Special Educational Needs; and our outdoor swimming pool has now been covered and fully enclosed.  We also have extensive grounds for the children including two playgrounds and large areas of green space.

The Good Shepherd Trust

The Good Shepherd Trust is a family of schools within the Diocese of Guildford that support and help each other yet each school in the Trust knows that they are unique.  They also recognise that they have important roles to play in the development of their communities - both educationally and spiritually. 

Schools in the Trust use the vision and values of Jesus Christ as the basis of their work which means that they value each child as an individual - whatever their social, cultural or religious background.

Living and Working in Surrey

Surrey is a county of contrasts. Only a short journey from London, it also offers a quick escape into peaceful countryside. This pleasant environment is combined with transport links that include the M3, M23 and M25 motorways, road and rail to London, and easy access to Gatwick and Heathrow airports.

In spite of a population of just over a million in a comparatively small area of 650 square miles, 80% of the county is farmland, woods, heath and open land. Although Surrey is a wealthy county, there are areas of relative poverty, particularly around some of the larger towns and a number of schools have pupils with a wide diversity of nationalities, cultures and languages.

Booming economy
There have recently been several major town centre redevelopments in Surrey. In the field of education and research, centres include Royal Holloway University (London) at Egham and Surrey University at Guildford. New research related technologies are also represented at Surrey University's research park and many multinational companies continue to relocate from London to Surrey.

Environmental issues
In Surrey there is a need to balance environmental conservation with the requirement for more homes, roads and commercial development.

For teachers in schools interested in green issues, Surrey County Council promotes environmental awareness with a wide range of initiatives to develop pupils' knowledge and experience.

Tourism and leisure
Surrey provides a wealth of contrasting leisure activities. Among the historic sites are Hampton Court Palace and Runnymede, as well as National Trust properties such as Clandon and Polesden Lacey. Other attractions include picturesque villages, gardens, such as Wisley, racecourses and river trips. Surrey also has seven major arts venues.

Sports centres are also plentiful, among them the Spectrum Centre in Guildford, probably the most exciting leisure complex in the UK. Other first-class facilities are available in Camberley, Egham, Lingfield and Oxted.

For cyclists and walkers there is an extensive network of footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes and Surrey also boasts high-quality shopping malls, particularly in Kingston, Guildford and Camberley.

The Visit Surrey tourism website gives comprehensive information about all these leisure activities.

 

Travel
Surrey has good road and rail links to London, Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
