St. John's

A significant part of the parish priest’s work revolves around the life of St John’s Primary, a one form entry school just half a mile down the road from the church.

The relationship between the church and the school is integral to our parish life.

School families have a strong link with the church.

The school visits the church on a regular basis; there are services held there at least once a term.

House captains and others are invited to attend Mothering Sunday and Remembrance Sunday, as well as the Year 6 leavers service in July.

Year 6 take it in turns to work at the parish lunch club once a fortnight, while Year 3 children help at the toddler group.

For more information about the school please visit their website at

If you have questions about using church attendance as part of a school’s admission criteria, please contact the church wardens using details under the contact us section.
