Welcome to St John’s RC School

We are a non-maintained special school offering day provision for pupils aged 5 to 19 with a wide range of needs including moderate to severe learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and those with associated speech language and communication difficulties.

Although we are a Roman Catholic school we welcome pupils from all faiths and backgrounds.

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
