Current parents play an active and important role in school life, through the St John’s Parent Association (SJPA) and through their dedication, enthusiasm and support for a huge variety of school events. From supporting on the sidelines at sports fixtures, to cheering on the latest performing arts productions, we love welcoming parents into school. It says a lot about the deep-rooted sense of community that many parents maintain links with St John’s even after their children have left the School. They enrich school life in countless ways and we are grateful for everything they do.Parent Association
Our alumni - the OJs - is an active and enthusiastic group which offers opportunities for networking, careers advice, friendship and a host of enjoyable activities.
We love hearing from, and meeting up with, our former pupils and greatly value the lifelong connections so many of them maintain with St John's.
Our Wider Community
We're fortunate to have extensive links with local groups, other schools and organisations. We appreciate the opportunities we can offer to others and the benefits that those relationships bring to the richness of St John’s life. From Duke of Edinburgh's Award volunteering and helping in local schools, to inviting primary aged pupils to St John's for lessons or sports training, and organising our annual Community Holiday, we are proud of the variety of ways in which our pupils contribute to society.Leadership & Service
We are passionate about widening access to St John's and creating life-changing opportunities for young people. We want to open doors and unlock potential so that as many promising children as possible, regardless of their background or ability to pay fees, are able to benefit from everything that a St John’s education offers.
Founded to provide a free education to some of the poorest members of society, St John's has - with the generous help of our donors - provided this support ever since. It is central to our ethos and an important part of what we do.
