St John's is a small Catholic school set in beautiful grounds and welcomes pupils of all denominations. We are one of the family of feeder schools for St. Bede's Catholic High School. Our school is a happy place where pupils love to learn. Our outstanding results and comments from visitors to school are testament to this.
We are an accredited Forest School, providing a unique opportunity for pupils' learning and development and have recently achieved the gold mark for learning outside the classroom. We are the first in the north west to gain this award and only the second primary school in the country! We believe children need to engage in the great outdoors and the behaviour in school is exemplary.
We have a nursery for children from the age of three.
We are delighted with our latest Ofsted and Archdiocesan reports. Both can be viewed on this site.
Visits welcome. Contact us on 01704 893523.

Reading with your child|
It is important to contine to read to your child throughout their primary school years. It enables them to access stories that are at a level they could not read fluently themselves and develops their imagination and understanding of story structure! The second link has some suggestions for age appropriate books.
