Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to St John’s, a traditional school for the 21 st Century. At St John’s we pride ourselves on high standards in all areas of school life. As Headmaster, I am proud to lead a dedicated and well- qualified team of staff who are committed not just to high academic standards, but also to developing the whole child.

As such, we take pride in both our excellent academic record, and the musical, artistic and sporting achievements of our children. Indeed we have been the Essex Sports Hall Athletics Champions for the past 6 years. Furthermore, our school values of Achievement, Honesty, Caring, Responsibility, Forgiveness and Resilience develop both character and attitude, ensuring that our children leave St John’s happy, well rounded and prepared for their next step in education.

However, we believe that there is so much more to choosing a school than just collecting and comparing information.  At St. John’s we encourage openness and warmly welcome prospective parents to pay us a visit. I look forward to welcoming you.
