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.

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!
