You can only begin to get a sense of life at St John’s from the pages of a prospectus or website and so we would encourage you to visit us. By meeting pupils and staff and walking around the School, you will get a much better understanding of what makes this such a special place to be.
We run a variety of events throughout the year including whole-school Open Events and smaller events for specific audiences. We do recommend that you attend one of these if possible as they give you the chance to meet a wide variety of staff members and to talk about the full breadth of activities on offer at St John’s. However, we are happy to arrange an individual tour if you are unable to attend on the dates advertised.

Whole-school Open Events (11+, 13+, 16+)
St John's holds whole-school open events in Autumn and Spring each year (usually in September and April). During these events, the whole of the School is open and on show, and tours are given by current pupils. The Head and pupils will talk at 5.30 and 6.15pm on Friday and 9.30 and 10.15am on Saturday. Please note that the last tours take place at 6.15pm on Friday and 10.15am on Saturday.
Booking is not essential for a Whole-school Open Event. Please note that limited parking is available. Attendants will direct you to the car parks and to the two reception areas.
Discover Events (11+, 13+)
Discover St John’s mornings are smaller 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.
Advance booking is required for Discover Events.
Taster Mornings (11+)
Taster Mornings, usually held on a Saturday in Autumn Term, are designed to allow prospective pupils who are currently in Year 6 to get a flavour of school life at St John's. Please note that pupils do need to be registered for St John's in order to attend a Taster Morning.
Advance booking is required for Taster Mornings.
