About Us

The school’s two most recent Ofsted reports (April, 2008: May, 2013) judged the school to be ‘Outstanding’. The school was also judged to be ‘Outstanding’ in its previous two Church of England inspections (June, 2008: June 2013).

The school is a vibrant and exciting place to work. The staff is a dedicated team that is united behind a shared vision and ethos. We work well together, and are fully supportive and appreciative of each other. Visitors remark on the calm, friendly atmosphere that makes St John’s such a wonderful place to work. We are very much hoping that you might like to come and join our happy team! 

Our Vision and Values

Our school motto

Our new school motto is 'Celebrate and learn together'. These words were chosen by staff, pupils, governors and parents of St John's School, with support and input from Reverend M'Caw.


The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.


In 2013-14 the whole school community was involved in devising its values. This was achieved during two school away days for governors, teachers and staff and was led by the diocese. These values are firmly based upon the Christian values of the National Society. Our values are:

  • Creativity
  • Trust
  • Respect
  • Family
  • Peace
  • Freedom
  • Fun
  • Wisdom
  • Positivity

These values are of the highest importance to school life as they underpin the ethos and culture of the school community. They are prominently displayed in a painting of a values tree on the wall of the school hall and on canvases in every classroom. The values tree is referred to in assemblies and services.

Working for Wellsway Multi Academy Trust

The Trust’s strategic vision

  • Wellsway Multi Academy Trust will become a strong local partnership of schools that is cross-phase with a fully inclusive range of provision
