New starters Reception 2024

Hello and welcome to St John's. If you are thinking of joining St John's in September 2024 then please get in touch and we would be happy to give you an individual tour of the school. Please call 01625 428 222 or email

Our recent OFSTED report (September 2023) observed that, 'Firm foundations of learning start in Reception class. Staff use every opportunity, including books and stories, to develop children’s vocabulary and communication skills. Children in the early years are well prepared for the demands of Year 1. '

You may book into one of the following two sessions for a tour of the school: Wednesday 27th September at 9.30am or Friday 13th October at 9.30am. You can come and see the school in action and have a tour of our school and grounds. If you can't make either session it's not a problem. Please just email/ring and we will arrange an individual tour at your own convenience. 

The deadline for applications is January 15th and you can apply online:

The year in reception is a magical time where children make fantastic progress learning to read, write and count. They will have some wonderful experiences. We love the outdoors at St John's and children in reception will spend lots of time outdoors using our fantastic grounds and woodland.
