St. John’s is very fortunate to have two school sites at the top of Whiteladies Road that have both been specifically designed with our infant and junior children in mind.
Our infants (aged 4-7) are based at Lower Redland Road and our juniors (aged 7-11) are located a short walking distance away at our Worrall Road site. Each location is tailored to meet the needs of the age group based there, so all our children benefit from equipment and furniture that is size appropriate. Our younger children blossom in a nurturing environment especially developed for them, whilst our older children enjoy the more mature atmosphere and facilities of Worrall Road.
While our children benefit from these two custom built sites, St John’s is very much one school.
Our approach to teaching and learning, expectations of behaviour and Christian distinctiveness are consistent across both sites and this continuity of culture is led by our Headteacher, who divides his time between the two locations.
Our intake is 75 children per year (2.5 form). Therefore, our maximum size across the two sites is 525 children (225 in our infant site and 300 in our junior site). We like to think this is a “goldilocks” size, i.e. there are plenty of opportunities for children to find friends at school, however each site retains a small and personal feel.
