The Duchess of Cambridge – Kate Middleton with St John’s Pupils at The Hampton Court Secret Garden

Take a look at our recent visit to the amazing Secret Garden of Hampton Court, where we were privileged to meet The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton!

Follow this link to a news report of the whole day, our pupils appear in photos about half way through the article and were able to speak with The Duchess in person throughout the day!

See the result of our creative collaboration with Aardman Animations and Hampton Court Palace here!


Our pupils supplied both drawings and voices, plus some ad-libbed lines, to the creation of this animation. It spans the history of the Royal Hampton Court Palace and was shown to thousands of visitors to the palace – along with being hosted on their website, which you can see at the link above!

Welcome to St John the Baptist School

Teacher Headshots SMALL

St. John’s has an excellent reputation for being a friendly, family school.  We get to know our pupils as individuals and provide a secure and positive environment; one that stimulates enthusiasm, offers equal opportunity and a challenge for all.

We value our school’s rich history and we drive to be at the forefront of education.    We have an exciting and innovative creative cross-curriculum.  This has led to partnerships, significantly with nearby Hampton Court Palace where we have designed projects demonstrating how the palace can be used as a learning resource, not only for the children of St John’s, but other schools countrywide.

We have been Richmond’s Lead Primary in the borough’s Teaching School Alliance, supporting a number of other schools and leading a series of successful projects, including a substantial educational conference on the introduction of the The New Curriculum 2014. In 2015 we were awarded School Centred Initial Teacher Training status in affiliation with our London Diocesan Board.

An exciting year, in 2015 we also began our journey towards being a three-form entry Junior School.  Our expansion programme is now complete, with our beautiful new Craigie Building sympathetically reflecting the architecture of the main school.  We now have two buildings which offer six new classrooms, a new high-specification science and food-tech room, new arts studio, new library and a wonderful enlarged hall.

Our children are at the heart of all we do; these partnerships and other developments bring wider opportunities to our talented young people. Our pupils shine not only academically but also in  sports. Our involvement with the National Physical Laboratory Scientific Edge programme over a number of years has demonstrated the children’s prowess in science.  And of course, the arts is a key focus; our school’s renowned Drama Club and Orchestra have performed a number of Shakespearean plays in The Great Hall of Hampton Court Palace and performed a Baroque concert in the Queen’s State Apartments.  A group of choral speakers enjoyed performing a Michael Rosen poem at Richmond Theatre and our 2015 entry into the BBC’s classical music competition ’10 pieces’ was shown at the Royal Albert Hall Proms.

Our pupils enjoy school and care about helping each other and they care about the wider community.  A number of them were invited to the London Mayor’s ‘WE’ concert, also attended by Prince Harry, in recognition of their voluntary work and charitable attitude to life.

The school’s central rule is based on the Christian foundation of loving thy neighbour; ‘Treat others as you wish to be treated yourself’; the school’s motto is ‘Go for it!’ – for us, the two walk hand in hand.  The talented young people who arrive at St. John’s as new infants are kind to each other and live by this motto. They leave us as successful, confident and independent young seniors ready to face their secondary school and the rapidly-changing world beyond..

Do come and visit our school ~

Warmest wishes
