What parents and carers have to say about our school:

"Never before have we seen our child so eager to attend school and he is a much happier child at home too. Sending him to St John’s was the best thing that we could possibly have done."
Parent at the Annual Review

"The school listens, responds, supports; makes the impossible possible, makes what seems unachievable achievable and is a model of inclusion for all."
New parent

"The school’s work with parents is astonishing. In a very moving meeting with a group of parents, which has to be described in detail because of the profound statements that were made, several cried as they explained how much the school means to them and the many different ways in which the head teacher and staff have supported them."
Pauline Roberts - Assessor for Inclusion Quality Mark (UK) Ltd

"Our son returned from school with a twinkle in his eye and is happy to speak about his day at school. He also said he wanted to go to school on a Saturday!!? On Sunday evening, instead of tantrums, we have a little boy who is excited about going to school in the morning."
New parent

What the children have to say about our school:

"The school always supports us to do our best."

"If you are confused your teacher will pick someone to help you."

"The school is different from other schools as it has its own ideas and is surprising and unexpected in the help it gives."
