Our Curriculum



St John’s Curriculum is skill-based and research-led. In line with evidence-based guidance and research St John’s Curriculum actively recognises that Learning is a change to long-term memory. Our aims, thus, are to ensure that our pupils experience a wide breadth of study and have, by the end of each Key Stage, a long-term memory of an ambitious body of knowledge.


As such at St. John’s we encourage pupils to develop an enquiring mind and a love of learning. We aim to help them realise their full potential and become confident, happy members of their community.


There are three phases in a child’s life at St. John’s:
