At St John’s Priory School we believe in developing every child’s skills and qualities in small classes where teachers have the time to recognise and nurture individual skills.


With individual lesson plans and regular reports to parents, each child is encouraged to achieve their goals. When needs are identified, individual assistance is provided by Mrs Garbett, Head of Learning Support.

Family comes first

Our family comes first approach at St John’s Priory means that we do not have extended school days so that children can spend time with their own family. We are told by parents that this makes for happy children who are not pushed into growing up too soon.

The creative arts and more

Children at St John’s Priory enjoy a great range of creative arts including music, drama and art. The study of language and technology is also a vital part of the children’s education. We offer both French and Spanish from the Reception class.

One of our core strengths is the thorough preparation that children receive for entry into grammar schools and independent senior schools. The school maintains close links with neighbouring senior schools to ensure that transition to senior school is a smooth and exciting process.
