A welcome from the Headteacher

Thank you all for the very positive responses to my new post. I have accumulated 30 years of teaching experience at St John’s as well, holding the positions of Examinations officer and Assistant Head. St John’s is an extraordinary community, within which I feel privileged to belong. The family spirit which is engendered at the school held out its arms to my own daughters who were warmly welcomed and educated up to A Level. Be assured, the core values and Catholic ethos of the school will continue and prosper under my guidance and that of my senior staff. We shall be moving forward with our new initiatives both academic and co-curricular.

St John’s College prides itself on its outstanding academic results and exemplary pastoral care and we are immensely proud of all our achievements and progress which has now been recognised in our most recent ESTYN inspection report where we achieved Excellent  Standards: “The standards achieved by pupils across the school are extremely high and throughout the school pupils are confident and articulate learners”. We are indebted to all our dedicated staff, hard-working pupils and supportive parents.

Mr Shaun Moody – Headteacher
