Discover Events (11+, 13+)

Discover St John’s mornings are smaller open events for prospective pupils and parents, held on a normal school day regularly throughout the year in the Old Chapel.  The morning begins with refreshments and the opportunity to speak with academic staff, followed by a talk from The Head.  Visitors are then shown around the School by pupils.
