School Day

At St. John’s we want to make the most of every minute of learning time and so when the gates are opened for 8.45am, pupils make their way directly into class where their teachers are ready to receive them and begin ‘Early Morning Learning Activities.’

8:45 School gates open and pupils, including those attending Breakfast Club, make their way to their classes
