St John's School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Amazing small school with great international network”
Both my children had a fantastic time at St John's. The IB PYP is brilliant and really stimulated a love of learning for them both and they were able to really make the most of the international connections that the schools has. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this friendly, caring, nurturing school.
Please note that St John's School students do not study GCSEs - they study all IGCSEs and these are not represented in school performance tables. In 2013 our pass rate was 80% A*-C grades and 35% A* or A at IGCSE (exams which are widely considered to be more challenging than GCSES).
