Welcome to St John’s C. of E. Academy. Our school is committed to making a difference to every child in our care. We aim to give our children the best start to their education, developing a love of learning and creating happy memories along the way.
As part of the Diocese of Gloucester Academies Trust, our educational vision has a caring and supportive Christian ethos at its core. Our staff team are committed to every child achieving to the best of their ability. Working closely with parents and carers, we make sure that pupils are happy, safe and that they are achieving success in all areas of school life. We aim to enable every child at St John’s to flourish by encouraging their gifts and talents so that they leave us believing they can achieve.
We are lucky to be located in the picturesque Forest of Dean, which is steeped in history and offers a wealth of opportunities to enhance learning for our pupils and make learning as hands on and as meaningful as possible. We try to make learning creative, stimulating, inclusive and fun with lots of challenge and goals for the future. By offering an enriching, purposeful and exciting curriculum; our aim is that all teaching develops understanding, knowledge and skills.
St John’s is a nurturing, safe and stimulating environment where everyone is valued.
Visits are encouraged and welcomed: we would be delighted to show you around our wonderful school.
