Testimonials

After visiting St John’s ,for the first time as a prospective parent, I was so impressed by the caring, family atmosphere that I knew that I wanted my youngest son to come here. After an exhausting ,year long, battle Ian finally arrived at the school. Four years later I can say that our expectations have been more than met. Ian has improved from the little boy who was locked in his own world and following his own agenda to one who wants to take part in everything that is going on. The biggest thrill for me is to hear him talking and reading as he was virtually non verbal when he arrived.

Recently I became a governor at the school in the hope that I can give back something of what St John’s has given to Ian and our family.

The school and community ethos that is so evidently strong in your beautiful school

Our son has thoroughly enjoyed his first year at St John’s School.  His confidence has come on in leaps and bounds, the transformation is wonderful to see and it’s lovely to see him so inspired and motivated.  We are very proud of him! Our son speaks very warmly about his peers and how kind the children are.  He has a good set of friends and is very settled and very proud to be at St John’s.

Thank you to you all!  Never at any point in this year have we doubted you and your team, or our decision to send our child to St John’s!
