To St John the Baptist School

from Headteacher Mr J. Chamberlin

At St. John’s we value our 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; one that makes a difference.

Our main school rule, ‘Treat others as you wish to be treated yourself’, is founded in the Christian teachings of ‘Love thy Neighbour’ and embodies our approach to life in St. John’s and beyond. As a result, our pupils enjoy school, care about and help each other and about their wider community.

Our children are at the heart of all we do; we provide a broad and exciting curriculum and offer an array of wide-ranging opportunities for them. We encourage all to ‘Go for it!’ through our positive school motto. As a result, having joined us as infants, from our main feeder Hampton Wick Infant and Nursery School, our talented young people leave us as confident, caring, well rounded and inspirational young seniors - they are ready and prepared for their secondary education and the rapidly changing world beyond.

We value our school’s rich history and we drive to be at the forefront of education. We enjoy working and developing partnerships with our wider community, such as Hampton Court Palace, our fellow Richmond Church of England Schools, our Diocesan schools across London and ‘Teaching London’, our LDBS teacher training provider.

There is always something exciting happening at St. John’s, and we hope you enjoy browsing our website to gain an insight into our wonderful school.

Even better, do come and visit us here at St. John’s, where a warm welcome awaits you.

Warmest wishes,

Mr J. Chamberlin
