Will I get in?

Clifton and North Bristol schools are popular. We have no catchment area and children come to our school from across Bristol.  If you are moving to the area and looking for September or mid-year places, please come and talk to us. We are very used to accepting children throughout the academic year and are experts at quickly settling children into life at St John’s, so they soon feel part of the school family.

Please contact the office on 0117 903 0251 if you would like to know more about the current availability of places in each year group. There is a good chance we will be able to offer places to your children at our Ofsted Outstanding school.

Visiting the school

We recommend parents / carers visit the school before applying for a place: we think you’ll like it as much as we do, but every school has its own distinct character, and it is important you feel confident in what we can offer your child.

If you would like to arrange a visit, please call 0117 903 0251. We will offer you a tour of the school led by a member of the team and you will have the opportunity to see our school in action and ask any questions you may have.
