ESTYN Inspection Reports

ESTYN Inspection Reports

St John’s College is inspected by Estyn, the education and training inspectorate for Wales. As an independent school, the College must also meet the regulatory requirements of the Independent School Standards (Wales) Regulations 2003. 

We were last inspected in February 2018, when Estyn noted that “the standards achieved by pupils across the school are extremely high. Teachers know their pupils well and provide useful verbal feedback to them during lessons. The additional support provided to pupils outside of lessons makes an exceptional contribution to their wellbeing and high standards”. Estyn Crown Copyright, 2018
